Re: [Condor-users] windows determination of Memory

Condor indeed divides the overall amount of memory equally between all
VMs. What you are saying is at least strange - I had 8 GB quad and it
worked perfectly fine for me, though it was Linux. 
Make sure that your CPUs have hyperthreading disabled.
Available memory can be FORCED to be what you want in config file.


For every CPU to claim the whole amount of memory - just put MEMORY x
#CPUs. But this is BAD, since you actually overbook your memory, and may
eventually cause thrashing
