I am using a Linux server (132 GB RAM), set up by our IT support to run Mothur.
For the step cluster.split, Mothur has been running for over 2 days and the Mothur interface hasn’t changed a bit since this morning. I know it’s still running since I can see there is 1 Mothur job currently running on the server.
Does Mothur have some kind of progress indicator that I can watch to track the progress: how much is done; how much longer the wait is…
On a related note, I used to be able to include the “processors=8” option in cluster.split to have 8 Mothur jobs running simultaneously. This time, however, there is only 1 Mothur job even when I specified “processors=8”. Any thoughts on why?
