Default MeTis Partitioning
Posts: n/a
Hello All, I am trying to use Metis to partition and assign memory for a run. I made a *.ccl file thus: EXECUTION CONTROL: PARTITIONER STEP CONTROL :

Runtime Priority = Standard


MeTis Type = k-way

Option = MeTis

Partition weight Factores = 4.0, 4.0, 2 END END END

Then I issued for the solver I issued cfx5solve -def test.def -par part 3 -ccl part.ccl -par -dist master, slave1, slave2

However I got error messages for both the *.ccl and the solver run instructions. I will apprecaite if any one can kindly correct me. I am running cfx5.6 Thanks.

Hi sola,

Have you tried setting Metis partitioning in the command line rather than the ccl file?

Regards, Glenn

Glenn, I am not sure I understand what you mean in the 'command line' by your response to Sola, do you mean when starting the solver ? Please clarify, as I am also having the same problem

cfx5solve -def test.def -part 3 -ccl part.ccl -par-dist master, slave1, slave2
It should work now.

Hi Meri,

You can start the solver either from the Solver Manager or directly from the command line. Starting from the command line is useful when you are putting CFX runs into a script for unattended running of multiple jobs.

Note Gloria's post, it contains the corrected command line to run it. I think the error was in the -par-dist option, there is no space between the -par and the -dist bit.

regards, Glenn
