We have an IBM server in our research lab with Windows server 2008 R2 OS. Six users log in and use software like MATLAB or R and run their codes. When a bad program takes up too much RAM or CPU usage, the serve hangs and RDP disconnects. How do I solve this issue? I have enabled per_user resource management. But when 3 users all write code that require say, 3GB of memory, the problem still occurs. I believe I have to also limit the maximum usage permitted for all users.
