I'm assuming I need to run an app_config to run more than 10. Any idea what that might be?

no app_config needed. You can set the number of tasks on your settings page (on the Homepage). Up to 24 tasks.

Further, if you'd like to save some RAM, you could set multicore tasks, which, in total, need less RAM than single cores. Also the crunching time would decrease, of course (so a 2-core task would need about 6 hours, a 3-core task about 4 hours, ...)



I'm afraid changing the site settings will mess up my 2P rigs. It took me forever to get them to run correctly as it is.

Which tasks are multi-core? It's apparent I need to learn a whole lot more about this.

One thing I didn't mention is that CPU usage never goes over 55%. I'm running Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon (standard desktop). On my 2P Windows 7 machines CPU usage is normally at 90% plus.

I've also got RAM in eight cartridges. I'm wondering if dropping back to "single channel" four cartridges might help. Can also add 64gb additional RAM.

I'm trying to run Atlas on a Proliant DL580 G7 with quad E7-4870's. HT is enabled and I'm running 10 concurrent tasks. Everything seems fine. I've verified everything with the checklist. The problem is that tasks are taking 12+ hours to complete. Is this normal? Or is there a scaling issue I'm not aware of? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

PS: I am only running 128gb RAM. But RAM usage never exceeds 65%.
