Default low utilization of RAM
Posts: n/a

FYI: CFX11, OS WXP64, CPU XEON DUAL CORE 3Ghz, Nodes appr. 1.4 million

I am happy about my 16 GB RAM, but the use in progress at Memory allocation factor 1 is only at 25 % (info from Everest, Lavalys Inc.). The virtual memory is similar. If I put the Memory alloc. factor on 10 (serial in Solver Manager) the RAM-use is only at 90 %. Of course I prefer the full use of my RAM. Please, can give somebody any advice? Gives it more possibilities to adjust the memory use? How can I predict the alloc. factor before? The virtual memory raises with the RAM-use. But I thought, if the RAM is at 100% and more then the virtual memory will grow. Thank you very much, Toralf

Why allocate more memory than the simulation needs? It is rare to need to adjust the memory settings in CFX. You will not get a significant performance increase. Just leave the settings at the defaults.
