Default Post file is not created

Hi,

I've tried for several times, but the .pst file is not created in my working directory (neither in another one). I made a test run with a smaller model and it worked normally. How can I check if I have enough space in the disk? What can be another reason for my problem?

Regards,

Julie

Let us know whether you are completing the run or not? You can complete the run by aborting or letting it finish its all given iterations. If it is getting crashed in between it may not write the pst file. What kind of error you are getting? Check space on drives. reduce the post data writing frequency to 10 and see.

Yes, the computation runs till the convergence criterion satisfaction. I get no error messages. There are a lot of space on the device. The witing frequency is 20 iterations. Do you have any other idea?

Thanks,

Julie

In the starguide go to

Analysis Controls->Analysis Output

On that page check that the "Write Solution File" box is checked, look at the name of the "Solution Output File", and the "Solution Output Frequency".

I've checked it first. It's ok. It's something misterious.

Perhaps your .pst file would be larger than 2GB on a machine (Windows?) that will not support such a large file? Even then, I would expect it to write up to the limit and then fail. Do you have some quota placed on your use of disk space? What about scratch space - are your scratch files going to /tmp or your working directory? Perhaps they are taking up space preventing the writing of the .pst file but they get deleted automatically when the job finishes so it looks like you have enough space.

Hi Steve,

I work using unix emulation, so it's not the problem of Windows.

I have no quota and only 10% of the disk space are in use.

How do I check where the scratch files are written to?

Thanks,

Julie

I'm not sure what you mean by unix emulation (VMWARE on Windows maybe?). However, on most Unix/Linux machines the environmental variable TMPDIR determines where scratch files are written. If TMPDIR=. then they are usually written to your working directory. If its not set at all then usually they are written to /tmp. I don't think this rule applies 100% to every Unix OS, but certainly the majority.

How many characters is the casename? I once had a really long casename. When the analysis was over I didn't see a pst file. Turns out it was there, but due to the really long casename, the file name was truncated and the extension was left off. I renamed the file to something shorter, with a .pst extension, and I was able to load it in. Just a though.
