Quick notes on testing optimization flags with OpenFOAM et al

Posted January 20, 2020 at 18:45 by wyldckat

Greetings to all!

Tobi sent me an email earlier today related to this and I might as well leave a public note as well, to share with everyone the suggestions I had... so this is a quick copy-paste-adapt for future reference, until I or anyone else bothers with writing this at openfoamwiki.net

I have no idea yet for the current generation of Ryzen CPUs (Ryzen 3000 series), but I do know of this report for EPYC: http://www.prace-ri.eu/best-practice-guide-amd-epyc

Ideas on managing a repository that supports several OpenFOAM versions

Posted November 1, 2014 at 13:17 by wyldckat

It's been some time since I last blogged something about OpenFOAM. Most of my free time that I allocate to OpenFOAM-related topics has been more oriented to helping out on the forum and to write the most that I can on the unofficial OpenFOAM wiki: http://openfoamwiki.net/ - and Twitter is a bit quicker to micro-blog about stuff, so check out my Twitter feed as well: https://twitter.com/wyldckat

Anyway, today I received a question through a private message asking about ideas on how to...

Tags icc, openfoam

This is yet another one of my "rants on my blog" I do once in a while.

So today I was trying to reproduce this report: http://www.openfoam.org/mantisbt/view.php?id=590 - I was curious about this, because ICC is known for having great optimization on Intel processors (or at least it had in the past), as well as being completely free for non-commercial use on Linux.

The detail here is that I don't have an Intel CPU on my home computer. I've got an AMD 1055T x6 ...

<-- Related issues to ParaView with OpenFOAM - Fixes and solutions

Beginning with ParaView 3.12.0, a new method for building every single package that ParaView needs can be done via "SuperBuild", which is a sub-folder in the ParaView source code structure. The idea is simple:
  1. Run:
    Code:
    cmake-gui
    or similar, such as ccmake or cmake-qt-gui.
  2. Choose the "ParaVIew-3.12.0/SuperBuild" folder as the source code and pick some other folder as the folder for the building

Blog about my forks at github for the repositories OpenFOAM and ThirdParty

Posted September 17, 2011 at 05:36 by wyldckat
Updated February 2, 2013 at 05:44 by wyldckat

Note: This blog post will be edited whenever more details come to life.

A bit of an introduction:
I started my experience at github by forking the ThirdParty-2.0.x repository back in 12th of August of 2011. The objective was to create a branch named get-em which would possess modifications for a simple package manager for OpenFOAM's ThirdParty folder, to then be posted as a proposition for a feature request at OpenFOAM's bug tracker.
