Default Using Fluent's Parallel Solver

Hello all,

I have an 8 node linux (Red Hat 7.3) cluster that I've used to run parallel programs. I am now trying to run Fluent on this cluster and am not having much success.

I can get Fluent to spawn all the nodes and I can get the domain propertly partitioned, but when I start Iterating, it seems like the only node that has any load is the head node. All the other machines are pretty much idle. Also, the iterations go no faster than they did on my workstation.

I've tried with two different meshes - one approximately 80,000 elements and one 300,000 elements. I don't think these problems are too small.

I have the same problems when I try to run on only 2 process as well.

Any ideas? Thank you,

Jonathan

Hi Yoshita,

I'm facing a similar problem as Jonathan using Windows 7 and Fluent 14. All the nodes are spawned but while iterating it is taking too long between iterations. I assume that this is an issue of communication between the nodes. I hope you can give me an advice.

Thanks in advance,
César
