Suggestion for MPI_PROCESS for meshes
« on: February 15, 2018, 07:21:23 am »


Just a small yet very useful idea for assigning the MPI processes for meshes. It is possible to add the functionality to PyroSim where the user can assign a certain MPI process for more than one mesh at once. For example, the user can select the first 3 meshes, right click and have an option that would assign these selected meshes to process 0. Then select the next 3 meshes and assign them to process 1 and so on.

This would save me lot of time as I find it really time consuming to assign each one manually especially when I have to run a case on 20 cores (which I do more often than you think).

Many thanks

Thank you for the feature suggestion.

We should probably improve the UI for this kind of use in general.  I'll write something up and add it to our issue tracker.
