computer is slow after finishing a journal file
 
Hi!

I am running a large number of cases (something like a few hundred) in fluent using a journal file (only rcd, define BC, wcd). That are very small simulations (each file size about 1 MB).

When the journal file is finished (sometimes in the night), fluent kind of crashes... it makes the whole computer (a debian Linux system) totally slowly. When I kill all fluent processes, the computer runs fine again.

What happened? does fluent overloads the memory? How to avoid that?

Ralf
