saving grafics in batch-mode
I already read some other threads here and elsewhere how to save e.g. velocity-plots while making a simulation without gui.
So I tried:
"-g" => errors, because of disabled grafics
"-gu -driver null" => no errors but no saved grafics
"-gu -driver x11" => no errors, grafical windows were shown for every timestep/iteration but again no pictures are saved
"-gu -driver opengl" => same like with x11
in my .scm-file including the scheme-commands I defined the executing commands for opening a window, setting the right view and taking a hardcopy after each timestep
Im doing parallel job on a linux workstation
I guess its not possible to save grafics while working in batch-mode.
Any Ideas would be highly appreciated!
all I can say is that running fluent in the background using -gu -driver null and taking hardcopies at several timesteps works for me on a linux-cluster. I had to play around a little bit with my journal file to get all scheme commands working properly, maybe you should post your scheme-file and i will have a look at it.
Hi coglione, thx for your help.
./fluent 3ddp -g -t6 < /home/.../batch.scm > /home/.../out.dat 2> /home/.../out.error -ssh
# or the "-gu -driver null"
An excerpt of the batch-file is postet above, but I dont think there are faults in the commands, because I tried all of them in the text user interface in FLUENT
# edit: im working on a linux-cluster, too
i see you already work with Ansys12. I'm still on 6.3 and therefor not sure if there have been some changes regarding your topic. However, it is actually not a good idea to open an window with /display/open if you are in background mode and graphics driver is explicitly set to null. display/set is what i use, maybe you should give it a try.
So you mean "/display/set-window 9" ?
Its not working as well.
I just made the most simple case-file I can imagine, the elbow-file from the first tutorial
