-There are different ways of monitoring your solution. ​ Please refer to the page on [[howto:​remote_viz|Remote Visualization]] for instructions on how to get a VNC session on the visualization server. ​ Add the path to the VirtualGL installation with the environment setting: '''​export PATH=$PATH:/​opt/​VirtualGL/​bin'''​ Use qsub -f <job number> to find the actual compute node being used as master node for your simulation. ​ Start up the STAR-CCM+ GUI in your VNC session with the command line '''​vglrun starccm+ -rsh ssh -mesa'''​. ​ The vglrun wrapper and the -mesa command line option are both required to ensure that OpenGL works in the VNC session, unless you simply started up your X-session with vglrun. ​ Once you have the GUI open, you can connect to the solver process on your compute node, and you will be able to monitor your run and generate images.+There are different ways of monitoring your solution. ​ Please refer to the page on [[howto:​remote_viz|Remote Visualization]] for instructions on how to get a VNC session on visualization server ​or on a compute node.  Add the path to the VirtualGL installation with the environment setting: '''​export PATH=$PATH:/​opt/​VirtualGL/​bin'''​ Use qsub -f <job number> to find the actual compute node being used as master node for your simulation. ​ Start up the STAR-CCM+ GUI in your VNC session with the command line '''​vglrun starccm+ -rsh ssh -mesa'''​. ​ The vglrun wrapper and the -mesa command line option are both required to ensure that OpenGL works in the VNC session, unless you simply started up your X-session with vglrun. ​ Once you have the GUI open, you can connect to the solver process on your compute node, and you will be able to monitor your run and generate images.
  
 Be careful of leaving an idle GUI open, especially when using a Power on Demand license, where the license is wallclock hour based. ​ We have set up a 1 hour inactive time limit in order to try and limit the damage. Be careful of leaving an idle GUI open, especially when using a Power on Demand license, where the license is wallclock hour based. ​ We have set up a 1 hour inactive time limit in order to try and limit the damage.
