Hi

I have been running a simulation on a cluster. The simulation worked the first time I ran it with no problems however I have since refined the mesh and on resubmitting the file get the following error.

| ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction. |
| Message: |
| Memory error in ILURES. Please increase the value of the expert |
| parameter 'ilures memory factor' (default value is 1.0) and try a- |
| gain.

I have adjusted a couple of memory settings but am unable to find the setting it recommends above. The model is quite complicated however having worked once I wouldn't have thought a localised mesh refinement would make to much difference to the way it runs.

Would appreciate any advice any one has on this.

Thanks

Richard

This is an undocumented expert parameter. Add the expert parameter section and manually add this expert parameter and set it to a new value.

Hi

Thanks for your reply. I am unfamiliar with adding expert parameters. Is this done by editing the text or through the GUI interface?

Thanks

Richard

There two main options do realize it. There is a command line tool for read out the ccl from the def file. The other way would be to add an documented expert parameter by CFX-Pre as dummy. Then open with right click on the object expert parameter in the tree and edit in command editor. Now you can add your parameter by editing the text. Now you delete or reset your dummy. Click process in the command editor. Possibly you have to ignore the error in CFX-Pre
