Pyrosim error
« on: May 11, 2010, 06:01:30 am »


I have some problems while running Pyrosim on multiple processors. Occasionally an error message pops up sometime during the night, and I need to restart the program. I can''t get it to resume the simulation either.
This has happened in different simulations with different types of grid, and I don''t understand why it happens.

What is PyroSim doing when the error occurs?  (e.g. running a multi-mesh model with the MPI version of FDS, or running idle on a multi CPU machine)

If possible, please include your PyroSim version number and attach the crash log (LOG file mentioned in the error message), or a screenshot of the crash.

When you say you can''t get FDS to resume the simulation, does that mean you have a valid restart file, but FDS halts with an error or freezes?
