So Ive been running the pre-cluster for almost 7 days. When Im not using my laptop for anything else the CPU runs at about 40% and Mothur takes up almost all of that.
Since initiating the command the laptop has not been shut down, only locked though it likely went into standby overnight. Im not sure if the processing ability differs between locked and standby but Im only using two processors as I have a maximum of four and if I use all four, the command will be carried out but the program crashes upon generation of results.
My question is, is i possible to know whether the command is still being processed or is it a case of wait and see? All I have to go on is a lack of error notification.
Thanks in advance!
