Full Fluent license required for the master node?
 
Hi,

I am not sure how Fluent implements parallel calculation at a Linux cluster:

1. Does the master node require a full Fluent license or just a parallel license?

2. What is the role of the master node? Is it part of the computational node, same as the other slave nodes, or it just supervises the whole process? Does the master node need larger RAM and faster CPU?

3. After partitioning, how and where the software assembles the global coefficient matrix?

Thank you.

Paul

The master requires a full license.
