Did you know that you can control certain characteristics of AcuSolve jobs while they are running?  The AcuSig utility allows users to signal the solver to perform a number of actions including:

 

– write output (at a single step or at a list of steps)

– write restart files

– stop the simulation

– redo the existing time step

– modify the time increment (for transient cases with variable time step

controls)

– pass name=value pairs along to the solver for use with UDF functions that utilize USER_GLOBAL_DATA commands

– change the verbose level of the solver

 

For example, if you have a batch job running on a cluster somewhere and you decide that you want to set the verbose level to temporarily set the verbose level to a higher value, the following command would be used:

 

acuSig -sv 3

 

When you want to switch it back:

 

acuSig -sv 1

 

To see the full help listing of acuSig, execute the following command:

 

acuSig -h
