Computer shuts down upon run with multiple cores


#1

Hi!

This has happened to me three times in the last month, using honeybee (and ladybug? cant remember) components.

What happens is that I see the simulation windows pop up and then bam - windows goes into its normal shut down behaviour displaying a shut down screen.

I always save one core for stability and simulate with 7 instead of 8 cores. (Xeon E3-1505M @ 3GHz)

What could be causing this?

I’ve never experienced this using 8 for _numOfCPUs_. But admittedly, I’ve never tried 7.
Intel® Core™ i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz, 4200 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

I do experience a very hard immediate crash when using Accelerad, but that was because of TDR:

I found the issue in the logs, it was not related to Ladybug tools. It was a hardware thing - the processor overheating. Ill get it replaced.
