I have received this error twice when trying to complete a simulation (link below) and I'm not exactly sure how to interpret but I have no idea on how to resolve it:



FOAM FATAL IO ERROR: (openfoam-2112 patch=220610)

error in IOstream "0.17/U" for operation Foam::Ostream& Foam::operator<<(Foam::Ostream&, Foam::doubleScalar)

file: 0.17/U at line 598669.

From bool Foam::IOstream::fatalCheck(const char*) const

in file db/IOstreams/IOstreams/IOstream.C at line 70.

FOAM exiting

Bus error



I am following the procedure laid out in this tutorial.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUme...nnel=Interfluo

I am wondering if it would have anything to do with my hardware as I am running this LES simulation on a laptop with a 11th gen Intel Core i7 @ 2.80GHz (4 cores) and 12 Gb of memory, but I really have no idea. The simulation appears to work fine up until the 0.17 time stamp.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

is there enough space on your disk / hard drive?

As it turns out, I do have very little storage at them moment. It’s not clear to me though how that relates to the error I was shown. Isn’t a bus error related to memory?

For me this error message reads like "Cannot write (more of) this file to disk", presumably because there is no space left.


No idea why this is called a bus error but the IOStreams are used for any operations on the file system. Most of the time this means writing files

Yep, clearing more space in my disk drive solved the problem. Thank you for the help!
