ParaView

ParaView is an open-source, multi-platform data analysis and visualization application.

DAAC ParaView wiki

The gcc, openmpi, and paraview modules are required to start the ParaView server (pvserver).

module load gcc openmpi paraview

Forward your local port 11111 to port 11111 on a Ymir compute node:

Using qlogin

From Ymir, qlogin to a compute node.

$ qlogin -pe mpi 4

then

$ module load gcc openmpi paraview
$ mpirun pvserver

Note the compute node you land on then, from the host you will run the ParaView client:

$ ssh -L 11111:compute-node-name:11111 username@ymir.cse.ucdais.edu

Launch the ParaView client from your local host and make a connection to ymir.

$ paraview

Using qsub

Create a qsub script, e.g.; runPV.sh

#!/bin/sh
#$ -S /bin/bash
### Change to the current working directory:
#$ -cwd
### Job name:
#$ -N runPV

module load gcc openmpi paraview
mpirun pvserver

From Ymir head node:

$ qsub -pe mpi 8 runPV.sh

See what node the job landed on:

$ qstat

Set up ssh tunnel on your local host:

$ ssh -L 11111:compute-node:11111 ymir

Launch ParaView client from your local host

$ paraview

Make a connection to Ymir.


About ports:

The default ParaView server port may be in use, to check:

$ netstat -na | grep 11111

or

$ lsof -i:11111

To use a different port:

$ pvserver --server-port=11112
