Pause a simulation and check intermediate results
Hi everyone,

I'm currently running a transient simulation on multiple CPUs. Since the calculation time turned out to be too long I'd like to stop the simulation and analyse the results produced so far.
In the case folder at the moment I can't see the casename.ccmt file. If I use the command " star -kill " will the .ccmt file be generated?
In case not, could you please suggest me how to proceed?

Thank you in advance

If you do not have a .ccmt file it is because you either did not ask for transient output or your run has not progressed far enough to start saving transient results.

You can force star to save a ccmp like data set using "star -chkpnt".

That's the good answer.
