Thanks for the reply lycorn.

This system would be dedicated to running mprime so I think the linux kernel can suffice with 200MB. Also I tried placing the parameters in prime.txt and they did not work. Both workers ran a stage 2 test.

MaxHighMemWorkers=1
OnlyRunStage2WithMaxMemory=1

When I placed them in local.txt however (and of course removed it from prime.txt) one worker ran a stage 2 and the other worker moved on to another exponent to start a stage 1.
