Very low CPU and GPGPU usage
Posted 28 Dec 2018 by my_room_is_too_cold
My room is freezing cold. Hence me trying to use my computer as an electric heater
I installed BOINC and toggled "maximum power calculus" (not sure of the translation)
The problem is : I'm 3 hours into some molecular simulation and my CPU and GPGPU usage do not exceed 5% (according to windows task manager)
There is no sign of dysfunction in the interface, the green bar is filling slowly but surely
So I am still rolled in a blanket with two pullover underneath, which is not convenient for typing
Is it normal that a project has such a low workload ?
What can I do to ensure hours of continuous, strenuous labour for my components ?
