I was able to run the following flowgraph:


This runs at 4Msps complex, doing 131072-bin FFTs, giving a roughly 30Hz
resolution in the FFT bins.  The de-interleaver
  block "dispatches" out to 4 different FFT blocks, and I ran my tests
on a *dual core* Pentium D 925 with 667-Mhz DDR2
  memory.  I used the default "TPB" scheduler.

It handled the flow graph just fine without giving any USRP overruns,
until I upped it to 8Msps, at which point, I was getting
  a lot of uOuO.

This was part of the followup I promised to do a few days ago.  My
replacement mobo for my quad-core system arrives on
  Monday, so I'll re-try this experiment at higher bandwidths to see
what happens.  Unfortunately, I can't get FFT sizes greater
  than 131072, without provoking shmget() errors.

This is actually a fairly encouraging result, assuming I didn't botch
anything.  I tested the results using my 21cm receiving setup,
  and my 21cm signal source, and things appear to be showing up
correctly in the FFT outputs recorded in the output file.
