RAM and Swap size
I would like to know the size of RAM as well Swap space that I would need to run a 3D problem with StarCD. I am using a SGI machine. I am planning to use about 500000(0.5 million) - 1000000 (1 Million) cells.

Re: RAM and Swap size

I will recommend you not to use any sap space at all since that will degrade your performance very much.

As for the RAM, Star solver will need approx:

40-50 Mb per 100.000 hex cell

In your case that would be around 200 Mb - 500 Mb, (0.5 - 1.0 Mil cells) depending on your model, user functions etc.
