Hi, I am simulating a flame using my solver that is based on reactingFOAM, in OpenFOAM 1.7.1.
I need to use a large number of processors (~100) to run it, and also run it for a long time (~1 sec of physical time).
I see that the run creates a huge number of files if I write the solution after every ms or so. I need the frequent writes to monitor the behavior, so purgeWrite is not an option.
I tried writing to compressed, binary format-- the total disk space use is not much, but the disk policy restricts the number of files, so I am still in soup.
Is there a way to avoid this problem?
Thanks.

Hi Adhiraj,

This has been discussed on the following thread: Can I modify runTimeWrite() to output results into one folder?

Best regards,
Bruno
