Kill a specified compute node. The compute node is specified by its integer ID. Compute node 0 can only be killed if it is the last remaining compute node process.
Input a hosts database file.
Specify the path to the
Fluent.Inc installation directory. For most cases, the path should never have to be set.
Write a hosts file containing all entries in the
Available Hosts list.
Creates a compute node process. It prompts for a hostname and username. If no hostname is specified, the process will be spawned on the spawning machine. If no username is specified, the username of the spawning process will be used.
Enter the partition domain menu.
Set auto partition parameters.
Enable auto partitioning by zone or by domain.
Set the auto partition load vector.
Set the partition method.
Set auto partition pre-testing optimization.
Use partitions in a prepartitioned case file.
Merge every N partitions.
Calls the optimizer that attempts to decrease the number of interfaces by eliminating orphan cell clusters. (An orphan cluster is a group of connected cells such that each member has at least one face that is part of an interface boundary.)
Set the partition method.
Print active partition information (parallel solver).
Print partition information (serial solver).
Print stored partition information (parallel solver).
Enter the set partition parameters menu.
Allow partitions to cross zone boundaries (the default). If turned off, it will restrict partitioning to within each cell zone. This is recommended
only when cells in different zones require significantly different amounts of computation during the solution phase; for example, if the domain contains both solid and fluid zones.
Turn off all optimizations.
Turn on all optimizations.
Set cell function.
Set the number of cells desired for each partition. This is useful, for example, when computing on multiple machines with significantly different performance characteristics. If left unset, each partition will contain an approximately equal number of cells. Normalized relative values may be used for the entries.
Toggle the optimizer that attempts to decrease the number of interfaces by eliminating orphan cell clusters.
coordinate of the origin used by those partitioning functions that require a radial distance. By default, the origin is set to (0, 0, 0).
Enable the operation that determines the best coordinate-splitting direction.
Toggle the optimizer that attempts to minimize the number of interfaces by modifying the partition boundaries to reduce surface area.
Control the amount of information that is printed out during partitioning. If set to 1 (the default), a text character
. is displayed during each bisection, and partition statistics are displayed once the partitioning completes. If set to 2, additional information about the bisection operation is displayed during each bisection. If set to 0, partition statistics and information during each bisection are not displayed.
Call the optimizer that attempts to minimize the number of interfaces by modifying the partition boundaries to reduce surface area.
Use this partitioning.
Enter the set parallel parameters menu.
Use the fast I/O option.
Set partition mask.
Set spawn time-out in seconds.
Set the parallel verbosity.
Print the network connectivity for the selected compute node.
Enter the timer menu.
Print performance statistics in the console window.
