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


– 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
