"Homemade" Cluster/LAN [CFX-Solver]
Hello everyone,

I'm facing some inconvenient issues at the present stage of my research, what happens is that the mesh I'm using is too fine for the computers in the lab I run my simulations.

This problem happens with some other students here, simulations running for days and the computer resets at night for an unknown reason... results? Time loss.

So, is there any easy way to set the same simulation running in all the computers (there's 12 here)? What I'm doing is using the four cores of the processor, but in the same computer of course.

Just asking this because I'm going to publish an article soon, so I need my simulations done ASAP and besides, it'll help others aswell.

I'm not sure if I can call this "cluster", it's more like dividing the job with all the computers.

Is there any FAQ about it? Any tutorial? Does this require another software? Another license instead of the common one?

Thanks in advance.

This is a distributed parallel simulation and is well explained in the documentation, including the setup required. The parallel license you use for local parallel will also work for distributed parallel.
