Residuals in the log file
Hi everyone,
I use cavitatingFoam, and I usually redirect the terminal output to a log file that can be viewed later (cavitatingFoam > log). Each time step, the code shows the following data: *********************************** Time = 6.89243e10 DILUPBiCG: Solving for rho, Initial residual = 0.0446275, Final residual = 3.04602e11, No Iterations 1 maxmin rho: 869.997 865.673 maxmin gamma: 0 0 DILUPBiCG: Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 0.0297357, Final residual = 4.13384e10, No Iterations 1 DILUPBiCG: Solving for Uy, Initial residual = 0.029718, Final residual = 4.13323e10, No Iterations 1 DILUPBiCG: Solving for Uz, Initial residual = 0.0690214, Final residual = 9.63771e10, No Iterations 1 GAMG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 0.011162, Final residual = 3.51462e09, No Iterations 3 maxmin p: 8e+07 5.04471e+07 max(U) 20.6549 maxmin rho: 869.997 855.221 maxmin gamma: 0 0 GAMG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 0.00340274, Final residual = 2.19309e09, No Iterations 3 maxmin p: 8e+07 5.06173e+07 max(U) 20.6766 maxmin rho: 869.997 855.306 maxmin gamma: 0 0 GAMG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 0.00019062, Final residual = 2.68717e09, No Iterations 2 maxmin p: 8e+07 5.06262e+07 max(U) 20.6778 maxmin rho: 869.997 855.31 maxmin gamma: 0 0 ExecutionTime = 147.81 s ClockTime = 148 s ***************************************** What can I do to avoid the lines referred to the residuals? What files do I must modify? Thanks 
I guess the question is a bit outdated by now. But for the case somebody looks for it: Such settings (actually, at least most of the output settings) can be made within the /etc/controlDict file which is available in every installation to my knowledge. Setting 1 or 0 for the different Outputs should make it write the specific lines (or not)...
