Check the running time of GiD

Postby Beshoy Riad » Tue Feb 06, 2018 11:03 pm

I just wanna know how to know the expected running time of a specific model. if available. And if I can control the number of processors to be used in calculations?

Best regards

The calculation is a .exe separated process independent of GiD.
GiD cannot know how much time could spend running.

Only the calculation program could forecast the simulation time, and print some running information (percent, number of iteration, ....) in the declared 'OutputFile' to be showed to the user in Calculate->View process info... window

Also run in multi-thread, or with MPI parallelism depends on the calculation code, not depends on GiD.

If the calculation code is multi-thread, the problemtype could offer to the user in some window the amount of cores to be used, and this information could be provided to the calculation code (e.g. written in the calculation input file, or setting a environment variable like OMP_NUM_THREADS of OpenMP)
