I'm running LES on HPC. The case is set to write autosave for CFD post on a few planes and iso-surfaces. But none of the autosaved cases works! and there is an error.July 2, 2021 at 1:59 pmRKAnsys EmployeeHello,
Does this save on your local computer? It's probably an issue with graphics. I would suggest you to write out the contours using execute commands and create an animation on your local computer.
July 2, 2021 at 3:09 pmRobAnsys EmployeeIf you display those surfaces can you see anything? What are you autosaving?

Thanks for your comment. It's running and saving on the HPC. How can I save them on my own computer? The connection is through MobaXterm. I tried animation, but it doesn't work! Actually, it was working well when I ran on one node, but now I'm running on two nodes and it doesn't work.
July 2, 2021 at 3:46 pmNimaNZSubscriberthanks for your reply. No the name of the surface is there and the data file size is as it should be, but when I try to draw contour nothing appears.

If the surface is present and the data is there it should be OK. What happens if you use two nodes on your local machine? Note, you can tell Fluent to run on 8 nodes on a 4 node machine, it's just slow. Here we want to see what happens rather than solve the actual compute run.
July 5, 2021 at 2:38 pmNimaNZSubscriberThanks so much for your reply.
I set the animation scene through the calculation activities to be saved every 1000 time-steps; it gives a file named "core.31718", I don't know how to deal with them!
Yes, I prepare the cas.gz file by setting it as 80 cores on my machine then send it to the HPC, otherwise, it doesn't read the inlet profile properly.
The autosaved files seem okay, but how can I read them; the CFD-post doesn't read them, when I want to draw a contour the error pups up and says this is a null surface!
July 5, 2021 at 3:10 pmRobAnsys EmployeeWhat exactly are you saving? .cdat ought to read into CFD Post providing there's a suitable case file. The animation tool should give an mpeg but I've not used it other than in tutorials. I save .jpeg or similar and stitch them together.
July 5, 2021 at 4:30 pmNimaNZSubscriberYes, I'm saving .cdat through cfd-post. I saved both case and data files.
I will check the animation again, but it was HHP (if I'm not mistaken).
Thanks a million for your help.

July 6, 2021 at 10:15 amNimaNZSubscriberThat's right, I'll check that; Thanks so much for your help on thisViewing 10 reply threads
