Jump to: navigation, search

The QMD core is taxing the memory subsystem so much there is little memory bandwidth or CPU cycles left over for any other processes. Because of this, there has been a lot of debate about QMDs, and it is not recommended to run more than one QMD WU per system. Even with only one QMD running, some applications may still show lower performance.

Tip: Lowering the FAH client CPU usage a bit will reduce the effects of QMD (see post)

Corporate folders may want review these ways for not getting the QMD WUs:
