checkMesh on a decomposed case?
 
Hi all,

Is it possible to somehow run checkMesh on a decomposed case?
Also yPlus and vorticity would be nice.

I haven't found out how but maybe I'm missing something. . . . .

hello,

Yes, look at "checkMesh -help", you 'll find a -parallel option for this.
Same for other tools i think.

regards,
olivier

Hi Olivier,

Ok, I see. . . . .
That means that I have to run my case on the same number of cpu-s as before?
and then submit my job to the cluster once for each postprocessing step I guess?

yes, or recompose your case (but i think this is really simpler to keep the decomposed case all the time).

Ok thanks!
( I was hoping to be able to do this just locally still without recomposing my case. )
Edit: So Yes, It can be done locally by overloading the processors . . . . but it is slow.
