Dear All,

This new application version is the same as 1.44.
We had an issue with the latest task (some jobs were failing), that was the reason of version 1.45 (with more VM memory).
In version 1.45 the image memory was increased, yesterday we found the real reason of the failing jobs.
We reverse the version since there was no need to have more memory and larger image.

Thank you!
Efrat

When I click on the show VM console it comes up asking for me to enter a username suggesting that I use # <PIN >but when I entered this it says it's wrong. What do I need to enter to view the console output. when I click show graphics my web browser opens but nothing can be displayed. Any ideal why this could be happening? I have CPU virtualisation on. I am using virtual box 5.0 .14 R 105127

ATLAS 1.46 still doesn't seem to fix the problem...

I had my computer freez 4 times because of memory over usage.
So I finished all tasks and started over with no work, not even GPU work.
Task Manager is showing 6.5GB, that's 41% used memory without BOINC running.
I started ATLAS and some GPU work from another source, and it's been 3 hrs running now.
I have BOINC to use at most "65%" of memory.
Virtualbox is showing 2,241 "Base Memory" for each ATLAS meaning they can all use 2GB when need to. If they all use 2Gigs at once it will total 13Gigs leaving only 2.5 Gigs for non-BOINC and any other work from BOINC.
It's starts running 5 ATLAS CPU BOINC work and showing the others "Waiting for memory" and my memory is already at it's max right now... I have 12 cores and 16Gigs of memory and it's maxed out at 5 wu only. Repeat 65% of memory BOINC is set to for memory and still uses 100% of my ram.
Computer is doing 5 sec lags from time to time as I'm posting now.
ATLAS and TLP are the only ones to seem to go way over my memory limit. I have 30 Projects assigned with no problems for a year until ATLAS and TLP start to go crazy with my 16Gigs of memory and ATLAS will freeze my computer screen while hearing my hard drive thrashing away with swap files. And yes I can here my hard drive click right after my computer freezes.

Before ATLAS v1.46 it ran 10 work units at a time and I notice it ran 6 and now it's at 5 and still going over. I can get them to finish if I suspend all but 2 or 3 ATLAS WUs.
