Local Parallel Processing
 
Hello,
I had been using local parallel setup for processing for a long time, now the problem I am encountering is, the software runs only on serial mode and stops with error(code 255 or something like that).
I believe there is an option to activate all core (I use i5) somewhere there? Does any one have any idea.
I don't thing the problem is with licensing because the software was running well for a long time.

Help would be appreciated!!!:)

Local Parallel Processing - error
 
First solver gives the following error:
An error has occurred in cfx5solve: |

| The ANSYS CFX solver could not be started, or exited with return |
| code 255: No such file or directory. No results file has been |
| created.


Then the cause of error is given as :

howmany partitions did you used for parallel processing?did you try just 5 partitions (same part as your number of CPU processores)

"Detailed information can be found in the output file for the run, which can be viewed by selecting Display Monitors from the Solution component."

What is logged in the output file as an Error??

And in general without any HPC-Licenses you can run a simulation on max. 4 Cores Local Parallel. Just have to select this option in the solver gui and set the number of cores to 4 (if you have four cores).

Nope I used 2 CPU processors!! and sometimes 3. But either 2, 3, 4 does not work now. Runs just with serial processing.

Yes I understand there are two ways to set the number of processor, one in pre and one in solver. No matter where it is specified, i the solver ends with error.

I would dig deeper into this.

* Does the simulation complete the partitioning stage OK?
* If yes, try a different multi-processor approach (HP-MPI, PVM, anything different which is valid for your OS). Often a different approach works.

I have tried all, distributed local parallel too. I don't have any idea where the software stores the partition file.
I have tried uninstalling and installing software, deleted all values from registry editor, and tried installing. Finally running again there is still the same error. Check out the license, it is fine. It's Horrible!!!!

ghorrocks April 26, 2013 07:24

It is highly unlikely you will get the same error with PVM versus MPI. They are totally different approaches. If PVM does not work you will at least get a different error message with it.

The first section of the output file describes the partitioning. Does it complete?
