I'm using Wine to run a surface water model (.exe) with Ubuntu 14.04. I have a shell script that runs the model 1000 times, passing different input directories like so:
wine PRZM5.exe "/home/ubuntu/ProjectOutput/177_CAcitrus365_HydC" wine PRZM5.exe "/home/ubuntu/ProjectOutput/177_CAcitrus366_HydC" wine PRZM5.exe "/home/ubuntu/ProjectOutput/177_CAcitrus367_HydC"
On average, it takes 11 minutes for the first 100 model runs to complete. The next 100 runs take 40 minutes, and the 100 after that take 65 minutes.
What could be causing this major slowdown? Will starting wineserver -p before running this help?
Also, are there any configuration settings I could use to increase execution speed, given that I don't need any visual output, just the output files the model generates?
I'm running these scripts on a AWS t1.micro machine-- 0.613 GiB memory with 8 GB hard drive space.
Very new to Linux-- any help appreciated!
