I don't know if it is a memory leak exactly, but is R@H supposed to take 60MB memory?

It's at 108 MB for me, peak 144. And seems to be stuck at 83.33% done as the to-complete estimate rises. This is my first WU but I might have to abort it if it doesn't decrease memory or start looking like it will finish soon; running over night with increasing memory consumption is not an option.

You shouldn't run rosetta unless you have 512 mb ram. And 108 mb is normal for rosetta though it might fluctuate during the computing. And it progress bar jumps in quite large chunks.

Well thanks for the warning. I've got a gig of memory but since I leave BOINC projects in memory, and have read that this beta project may have particular difficulties if not left in memory -- I'm not really enthused about the 157 MB it's currently consuming. None of the other 5 projects I run takes as much as 50 MB, but it all adds up, and XP is a hog to begin with. Will keep an eye on it and perhaps run this project only sporadically for a while.


And yes, I see the progress statistic is jumping around. Only cared if that + memory increase indicated a nasty loop, so knowing this is normal for Rosetta is helpful. Thank you.

I do wish people would read other threads before posting more or less the same problems and questions as others.

Rosetta is BETA, yes the WU's look to stop at 83.33% on some clients at the moemnt this is changing

Yes thw WU's are in timesteps 12 I beleive so if the system crashes it starts at the last timestep it reached and Yes it uses a lot of memory all questions covered in the last few weeks.

Stop been bone idle and read the posts
