Hi Foamers,

has anybody ever had problems with running faceSource function object (useful to average a field on a plane or in a region) in parallel?

I'm trying to run a calculation in parallel and the simulation get stuck after solving all the fields, while everything goes smooth in serial.

Here is the code snippet in my system/controlDict

        type            faceSource;
        functionObjectLibs ("");
        enabled         true;
        outputControl   timeStep;
        outputInterval  1;
        log             true;
        valueOutput     false;
        source          sampledSurface;  // Type of face source: faceZone, patch
        sourceName      faceObj1;
        operation       areaAverage;
                type cuttingPlane;
                planeType           pointAndNormal;
                        basePoint       (0.00025 0 0);  
                        normalVector    (1 0 0);
                source cells; // sample cells or boundaryFaces
                interpolate false;
        surfaceFormat dx;
