There are two checkpointing modes:

* check-fluent - After the current iteration is complete, Fluent will save the current solution to case and data files, then continue running. * exit-fluent - After the current iteration is complete, Fluent will save the current solution to case and data files, then exit.

To do this on a UNIX machine:

* Create a text file with either the filename "check-fluent" or "exit-fluent" and place this file in the directory /tmp. The contents of the file are irrelevant - Fluent will only check to see if a file with one of the above names exists in the /tmp directory.

To do this on a PC/Windows machine:

* Create a text file with either the filename "check-fluent.txt" or "exit-fluent.txt" and place this file in the directory C:\TEMP. The contents of the file are irrelevant - Fluent will only check to see if a file with one of the above names exists in the C:\TEMP directory.

Notes:

* DOS requires the .txt extension on the filename. * Once a check-fluent or exit-fluent is performed, Fluent will automatically remove the file from /tmp or C:\TEMP. Thus, if you wish to perform another check-fluent, simply create a new file. * Fluent will append the current iteration counter to the filename so that unique filenames will be created if multiple instances of check-fluent are performed.
