Hi everyone,

Has someone been able to run the routine
"pyFoamSamplePlot.py" from the pyFoam library
(version 2.3).

It seems to be a problem when the routine is reading the file header of the sample files, obtained from the sample command in FoamX.

The bug slightly differs from one output format to another of the sample command (gnuplot, raw, xmgr or jplot).

It says for the gnuplot format :

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/admintools/ext_python/bin/pyFoamSamplePlot.py", line 5, in ?
SamplePlot()
File "/home/admintools/ext_python/lib/python2.3/site-packages/PyFoam/Applicati

nary/SampleDirectory.py", line 136, in extractValues
tmp[-1]=tmp[-1].split(".")[0]
IndexError: list index out of range

It always seems to come from the tmp array.

Thanks for your help

Yes. I have ;)

Could you post the command line that you were using?

I'll have a look what the problem might be

Hello,

I am trying to use PyFoam for monitoring the solution (residuals etc). I installed the PyFoam as non-root user according to the instructions in http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Contrib_PyFoam

Then I did the installation checks (seems OK):

Then tried to plot residual of job.

Is the syntax correct? I ran a job using foamJob and wanted to have a graph of residuals


Since it seemed that gnuplot had some problem, did a check :
***************************************

***************************************

Does PyFoam need a particular version of Gnuplot ?

Kindly help.

Hi Rishi!

My initial reaction was "Oh, my god didn't test this utility with the last release. Propably it is broken". Tested it here: it works.

To answer your question: no. It doesn't need a specific gnuplot and your version is fine. The module it is refering to is a Python-module (not written by me) that controls gnuplot (the program). And it can't find the module. Current distributions bring this module (older distributions of PyFoam required you to install it). So one way to fix it is to edit the script and replace the line

import Gnuplot

with

import PyFoam.ThirdParty.Gnuplot as Gnuplot

(make sure that the same number of spaces is there)

The other "fix" would be to use the pyFoamPlotWatcher.py

Hello Bernhard,

I edited the following file as mentioned by you:
(in the source directory, where I untarred the files)

/home/cfd2/OpenFOAM/PyFoam-0.5.1/build/scripts-2.4/pyFoamPlotResiduals.py

Then I re-installed PyFoam again in another directory:
************************************************** *******
python setup.py install --prefix=/home/cfd2/OpenFOAM/PyFoam
************************************************** *******

Then I did an installation check and its OK
************************************************** *******

>>> import PyFoam
>>> import PyFoam.FoamInformation
>>> print PyFoam.FoamInformation.foamTutorials()

************************************************** *******

and ran the utility again:
************************************************** *******
pyFoamPlotResiduals.py .

************************************************** *******
it seems that atleast the Gnuplot problem was solved.
However the gnuplot files were missing.
So I ran the case again as follows:

Hi Rishi!

Seems like. But that is strange since the relevant library is part of the python-standard-libraries:
http://www.python.org/doc/2.4.1/lib/....html#l2h-4292
at least for your version of Python. Which distro do you use? (maybe they've got a strange attitude about what a complete python-installation should be - I've seen such a thing with Suse)

Bernhard

PS: for the time being replacing in Applications/Runner.py the line

server=True,

with

server=False,

may or may not fix your problem

Hello Bernhard,

I tried with server=True, but I get the same error message.

I am SuSE Enterprise 10 on AMD64.

For some strange reason, there are two versions of python installations on the system, however the same version (apparently) !

/usr/bin/python
Python 2.4.2 (#1, Jun 16 2006, 17:15:08)
[GCC 4.1.0 (SUSE Linux)] on linux2

>>>

any clues will be helpful. OR should I install the latest version of python as non-root using ./configure method in OpenFOAM/ThirdParty ?

Thanks,
Rishi

Hi Rishi!

Usually python is just a symbolic link to the most recent (in your case python2.4) python-version. Please check with

python -c 'import xml'

whether your installation is really missing the xml-module. The have a look at the package-manager of your distribution whether there is a way to install that standard-package.

Bernhard

PS: Anyone here with a Suse and a working PyFoam-installation who can comment on this?

Hello Bernhard,
I am using OF-1.5 and lesInterFOAM solver to perform a simulation on a liquid sheeet being injected into a chamber with pressure difference. I have performed the simulations on the cluster and then I bring all the result files to my laptop and post process them.
I found out that I can use the PyfoamPlotwatcher.py script to plot my log fil.

I did that simply by using pyfoamplotwatcher.py logfile.

the script gave me three graphs, one plotting the residuals, the second with continuity and the third showing K_min,K_max,K_avg.

My first concern is what exactly is the residuals plot plotting.


1) does it plot the final residual vs timestep for U_x,U_y,U_z,pd,k. it is not reading pcorr.
is it using a log scale.
so can i assume that the plot represents the final residual printed in my logfile corresponding to each variable. (correct if wrong)
I will start looking into the script, but I have very little knowledge in Python, so any help from your side would be appreciated.

I also used the foamlog script on my log file and it gives me the directory logs. I am also looking into these files.
bye

Hi Suresh!

No. PyFoam plots the initial residual of the solver (if the solver is called for a number of times the value from the first call is used). The Final residual wouldn't make much sense, since it should always be below the solver tolerance and therefor isn't of much interest for judging the solver progress

Hello Bernhard,

Thankyou very much for your reply. I had a close look at the file and the plot , and now i understand the plots made by PyFOAM. Your point is correct the final residual is not much of interest for judging the solver progress as it should always be below the solver tolerance.

Just one more question regarding the foamlog script. I have generated the logs directory which contains all the files.

pd_0,pd_1
pdfinalRes_0,pdfinalRes_1

pdIters_0,pdIters_1

it would be very helpful to me if you give me some brief information regarding these files or some post where I can find the information regarding these files.

Hi Suresh.

a) this is not really a PyFoam-question, is it?
b) I don't know much more about foamLog than what the user-guide has to say. But if you have a look at the start of your logfile and the start of (for instance) pd_0, then figuring out which number goes into which file should be fairly easy

Hello Bernhard,

An update from my side. As you mentioned SUSE (SLED 10 in my case) has a lot of missing things with respect to XML-PYTHON etc...

I finally managed to run PyFoam (atleast partially) by installing approx. two dozen RPMs. I searched for all RPMs related to XML, Python, Tcl, libxml2, etc (with development RPMs if availalbe) and installed many of them. So I dont know which one was real problem solver, but installing these missing things does solve the problem with SUSE (partially).

Now I can run some PyFoam scripts like pyFoamClearCase, pyFoamPlotRunner, pyFoamPlotWatcher, etc. However some problem with Gnuplot and VTK is not solved. I get error message like
pyFoamPlotResiduals.py: error: Gnuplot module missing. Can't plot
pyFoamDisplayBlockMesh. Error while importing modules, no module named vtk

Any suggestions ?

This is a really cool tool and I wonder why its not included in the official OpenFOAM distribution till now. Thanks
Rishi

Hi Rishi!

Sorry about hearing those interdependencies. I hear that SuSE is quite a nice distro, but the PYthon-support seems to be a bit awkward

Anyway.

@pyFoamPlotResiduals.py: Havn't used that in quite some time because the PlotWatcher has the same functionality (and more). Nevertheless your problem is strange because it should use the Gnuplot-module that is in PyFoam.ThirdParty (the same that is used by the PlotWatcher)
@pyFoamDisplayBlockMesh.py: See http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Co...ayBlockMesh.py Look for a RPM vtk-python or similar (will need at least a vtk.rpm) The VTK that comes with Paraview is NOT an option

Thanks for your kind words.

pyFoam is not included because the guys at OpenCFD have the policy to only include stuff in the release that they can maintain. That means stuff written by them or necessary stuff (the things in ThirdParty). If you have a look at the message board about the problems people have with the ThirdParty-stuff that is already you will see that it is quite sensible to not include everything that looks nice (especially if you have a look at the can of dependency problems that PyFoam opened for you)

Bernhard

Hi!

I installed Pyfoam-0.5.2 on my 64-bit Opensuse 11.0 installation and the pyFoamPlotWatcher gives no output. In contrast: on a similar installation on a 32-bit version of Opensuse 11.0 pyFoam works pretty!!

The dir "log.analyzed" is correctly generated. However, there are no files in this dir and gnuplot then complains about the xrange. This is clear to me, as there is nothing to plot

Any idea where to look for and what can be the problem?

cheers

It can't be a 64-bit problem per se. I'm using it ONLY on 64-bit. And there should be no difference between a 64-bit and a 32-bit Python anyway

The problem looks like the watcher never matches a "Time = ..." and therefore never writes data.

First: have you tried both versions (64/32) on exactly the same file? Just to exclude different formats of the "Time = ..." being written due to different versions or solvers.

If the watcher works for one version but not for the other, then I'm a bit confused and I'd need some more information (character encoding etc).

Hi,

I have installed OpenFOAM 1.5 with Suse 11.1.
I installed pyFoam as a regular user. (using gnuplot 4.2.3 and Python2.6). Testing the Installations shows nothing irregular.

For example pyFoamClearPage.py works without problems,
but when running for example pyFoamPlotWatcher.py I get following message:

>>> exit()
hi204@islacrux:~/OpenFOAM/thomas-1.5/backward> pyFoamPlotWatcher.py log
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/hi204/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/my_python/bin/pyFoamPlotWatcher.py", line 3, in <module>
from PyFoam.Applications.PlotWatcher import PlotWatcher
File "/home/hi204/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/my_python/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/PyFoam/Applications/PlotWatcher.py", line 6, in <module>
from PyFoam.Execution.GnuplotRunner import GnuplotWatcher
File "/home/hi204/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/my_python/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/PyFoam/Execution/GnuplotRunner.py", line 86
with="steps",

I don"t know much about Linux and have problems with understanding the massage. Could anyone help me, please?

Thanks,
Thomas

Starting with the newest version 2.6 of the python 2.x-line "with" is is a reserved version. The problem is that you're not using the newest version of PyFoam (0.5.2) where all usages of with as a variable have been removed.

You can check which version of PyFoam you are using with the pyFoamVersion.py command

Hi Bernhard,

thank you very much for your help.
By installing 0.5.2 pyFoam the problem has been fixed.

But now there is the following (using pyFoamPlotWatcher) message:

Warning: empty x range [1:1], adjusting to [0.99:1.01]
Warning: empty y range [5.60322e-06:5.60322e-06], adjusting to [5.54719e-06:5.65925e-06]
Warning: empty y2 range [5.60322e-06:5.60322e-06], adjusting to [5.54719e-06:5.65925e-06]
Warning: empty x range [1:1], adjusting to [0.99:1.01]

Two gnuplot pop-ups open, but no graphs are displayed.
I have searched in the forum and I found the same problem description in
http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...-pyfoam-5.html

Has the problem been solved yet? I installed the pyFoam Version from https://openfoam-extend.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/openfoam-extend/trunk/Breede r/other/scripting/PyFoam, but nothing changed.

By the way, when starting pyFoamPlotRunner.py I get the same message.

Thanks & regards,

Thomas
