Greetings:

This is a message I received in the BOINC program on my computer, and I have no idea what it means:
______________________________________________

"The Lattice Project: Notice from server
GARLI needs 12200.00 MB RAM but only 7243.57 MB is available for use.
13-Feb-17 15:15:44"
______________________________________________

Is there something that I need to do on my computer?

If so, what would it be, and how would I go about doing it?

Thank you.

Add more RAM is my guess. Or give BOINC more to work with: Tools -> Computing preferences -> Disk and memory usage -> Memory usage -> Use at most ...

I will not recommend any value. Default should be "50 % when computer is in use" and "75 % when computer is idle". Although I don't see that BOINC ever cares if I'm using my PC at the moment or not. X-D

I also don't have enough memory to work Lattice tasks. Sometimes I suspect that this is a lazy way of stopping the feeder. :-P So people will not bug immediately why they're not getting tasks.

Oh, and also check the other topics:
Ram Size Problem for project???
It's a sticky thread in "Number crunching". ;-)
And we also probably shouldn't write in "News". X-D

I think that's asking a bit much from an 8 Gb computer, maybe I should detach.
