Let us assume that we have a pool of some 50 computers with 6 cores and 12 threads each.
If someone plans to use it for intensive astrophysics simulation using all of its logical CPUs (50*12) for 24x7, how long will it be able to sustain without any physical damage? Given simple cooling with ACs and the CPUs come with their own fans. Can there be any performance degradation over time? If yes, what is the solution?
Please note the two main requirements
- 100% CPU usage for all CPUs and,
- the concern is about continuous running over say, years.
