Questions and Answers :
Task problems - enormous work load tasks.
Posted 14 Jun 2013 by KWSN - Baron Von Crunchenstein
I keep receiving enormous work load tasks (100's .. 1,000's estimated work hours) due in 15 days or less requiring 8 CPU's. Now I do have 1 CPU showing 8 processors, and have made them available if needed.
Along with my enormous work load tasks (which I try and abort before they can run). I receive 8-10 tasks requiring a 15-20 minutes run time assisted by my NVIDIA GPU, which run quite well.
I have no objection to running a large program, if it is necessary, but I would require a reasonable deadline.
I apologize for aborting these tasks. Is there another course of action that I can or should take, that is more suitable?
