M. 2002.6 on alpha es40: 4 cpus, 8gb ram.
4 independent single-cpu jobs are running: scf, mp2, ccsdt and cas.
total load averages are about 2 instead of 4, each M. process
oscillates form 1% (!) to no more than 60% of cpu time. sar shows:
OSF1 V5.1 1885 alpha 03Jun2003
%usr %sys %wio %idle
Average 20 52 17 11
if I stop 2 of them and start e.g. 2 gaussians than gaussians take 100%
cpu without any problems and remaining M. processes get better but still
it is obvious that M. jobs "interfere" with each other in some way.
they are definitely not swapping! my 1st suspect-ion was that i/o is so
intensive however I can't find ANY temporary files created by those
jobs. where are they???
please help, regards, Pawel
