foamingMouth is on a distinguished road

I'd like to monitor my residuals on a simpleFoam project I am running using foamMonitor. I have followed section 6.3.4 "Live monitoring of data" from this tutorial:

I can get it to work nicely if I run it for a small test case, but when I run my main project in parallel the postProcessing folder does not appear.

After meshing I have typed the following into the terminal:

$ decomposePar
$ mpirun -n 6 renumberMesh -overwrite -parallel
$ mpirun -np 6 simpleFoam -parallel >log &
Do I have to change something to account for running in parallel with the foamMonitor to track residuals? So far I copied the "controlDict" and "residuals" files from my test case.
