Douglas is on a distinguished road
Is it possible with OpenFOAM 4.0 plot the residual field?
I want to plot the residual field to see where in the domain my simulation does not show good convergence.

I tried this in controlDict:

type residuals;
libs ( "" );
executeControl writeTime;
writeControl timeStep;
fields ( p_rgh h );
writeInterval 1;

This function plot only the largest value of the residual for the p_rgh and h fields but not the residuals fields over the domain.
I'm using the solver buoyantSimpleFoam.
