I'm not a seasoned LINUX guy, but clarify this first
1. what amount of memory have you allocated to STATA? is your _set mem_ number really low?
2. On the other hand, are you working in workstation with lots of RAM --> 0.9% is actually a large number?
all the best

Dear Statalisters who know about linux: I am running a long and computationaly intensive do file in Stata (it uses gllamm). When I use the top or ps commands I notice that 99% of cpu usage is dedicated to stata but only 0.9% of memory. Am I doing something wrong? Does that mean the cpu is the bottleneck (I thought RAM was more often than not the bottleneck)?
