▶ **FIX-ME** FAQ?
Sample usage for remote visualization:
Start ParaView server pvserver on the cluster using compute node, do *not* start pvserver from the
head node, e.g.:
qsub -I -l nodes=1:ppn=20,walltime=1:00:00 -q workq -A your_allocation_nameAfter you get the interactive session, start your pvserver from the *compute node*, e.g. smicXXX:
module load paraview/4.3.1/INTEL-140-MVAPICH2-2.0 mpirun -np 8 pvserver --server-port=11111*For unknown reason you might need to limit the number of pvserver process to 8
Establish an SSH tunnel:
Use the following command from your *local* terminal, note that the compute node number smicXXX should be the name of your compute node:
ssh -L11111:smicXXX:11111 -N email@example.comType your password and leave the terminal open.
Connect to the remote server using ParaView on your desktop:
Start the same version of paraview as installed on cluster, e.g. Pavaview 4.3.1 from your *local* terminal and use File > Connect to the forwarded localhost port.
