My colleague is running an engineering simulation application called Honeywell Unisim Design. The application has very basic graphics but runs massive calculations which currently run at a 13% of real time, therefore the simulations take up to 8 hours to complete.
When we look at the CPU usage and RAM usage the CPU is at 11% and the RAM is using 1.1Gb.
I’ve recently built a Windows 7 64bit computer with dual Zeon 5160 3.0Ghz. and 4Gb of RAM. The pc was never indented to run simulation software but my colleague’s pc had a critical failure and that’s all I had built.
I believe the software can only use one core and is 32 bit, the application is installed locally and run from the local hdd. Whilst I understand that the application won’t be able to use all the CPU or RAM, is there any way we can improve the 11% of CPU and 1.1Gb. utilisation. I’ve tried setting the Affinity to a single CPU and increasing the Set Priority however nothing has improved the performance.
Any help is hugely appreciated.
