Default RE: Parallel job in Vista-32
Posts: n/a

I'm a relatively new user of FLUENT/CFD and am curious as to how to properly set up my single Q6600 machine to run parallel simulations. So far, I have yet to see any performance increases running through "Parallel FlUENT" and serial FlUENT. In addition, using the FLUENT launcher in parallel mode usurps 75% cpu without even having loaded any *.cas file.

Some questions: 1) Must I set up a host file? 2) In fluent launcher, since I'm using a 32-bit O/S, I only have access to the following MPI options (default, mpich2, net). Which should I be using? 3) Are parallel jobs dependent on having a proper license key?

Regards, Kevin

Very easiest way to do it.....without knowing any thing.....

just right click on fluent shortcut and somewhere it says application location like as follow....


just change it to

c:\Fluent.Inc\ntbin\fluent.exe -t4

that is it....enjoy....

-t4 means four processors.

-t2 means two processors....
