Hello all, I have a question, is there an upper limit on the number of analyses that can be run on a aws cluster through PAT? I have been having problems with running Resstock simulations for around 100,000 cases. The entire run seems to saturate at 11,000 cases without any reason. Is my server running out of memory? I have not added the OpenStudio results measure and a results folder is only 320 KB locally, calculating that for 100,000 cases, should it not be much lower than 320 GB, the total size of c3.8x.large?

You can adjust Server Instance Type, Worker Instance Type, and/or Number of Workers (in the Remote Server Settings dropdown) according to the size of your analysis. For example, smaller analyses may require the c3.8xlarge server instance type, whereas larger analyses may require the d2.4xlarge server instance type and additional workers.

This is documented on the ResStock RTD website:
