Should I stop the run? Need urgent help.
 
Hi all....

I've one transient run on the SGI but it seems to freeze & not progressing anymore (top command shows 0.01% CPU usage). I checked the dir folder & out file. It stopped at writting the transient file 330.trn and I get a 330.trn.lck in the folder. It has been there for hours now.

How could I restart the run without losing my previous results? I only left about 5% in this case.

Thanks for help.

Re: Should I stop the run? It's a parallel solver.
 
Hi .... forget to mention....I'm running parallel solver at local nodes for this problem.

Hi,

Unless you have successfully saved a full result file you will not be able to restart. There is not enough information in a partial result file to do a restart.

Thanks, Glenn.

I've tried cfx5stop or use solver manager to stop the run & save the results....However, the solver doesn't response anymore.... Anyone has sucessfully rescue such problem before?

Hi,

Unfortunately you can only do a proper stop (that is writing a results file suitable for a restart) at the end of a timestep. If you cannot wait until the end of a timestep then there is no way of doing it, sorry.
