calc time
 
Dear all

Does anybody know if it is possible to find the total computational time in hours, minutes, and seconds of a case and data file? I cannot find this in the menus and wondered if there was a text command, to tell you how long a case had been run.

Cheers

Andy

P.S. I am using Fluent 5.5.14

In NT, when iteration is finished, you can look in taskmanager, the cpu time a program use can be found there.

On NT you can use journal or scheme lenguage and rederect time in some file like that: !time /t > test.txt --> your work in fluent until convergence !time /t >> test.txt

On Unix something like above: !date > ./test.txt --> your work in fluent until convergence !date >> ./test.txt

Sorry, this is correct:

!time /t > test.txt

--> your work in fluent until convergence

!time /t >> test.txt

On Unix something like above:

!date > ./test.txt

--> your work in fluent until convergence

!date >> ./test.txt

For the serial solver, you can measure the time spent iterating in Fluent through the use of a scheme file " benchmark.scm ". This file can be accessed through the Fluent User Services Center (www.fluentusers.com). Have a look under Fluent 5 - FAQ.

If you are running the parallel version, you can use the Parallel -> Timer feature.
