Running VisIt

There are two versions of VisIt installed on Lengau. Visit-2.10.2 is installed in /apps/chpc/compmech/CFD/VisIt/visit2.10.2/src/bin. Visit-2.13.2 is installed in /apps/chpc/compmech/visit2_12_3.linux-x86_64. Both versions are available as modules. Use the command module avail to find it. Please refer to the VisIt web site for more information on VisIt. For interactive graphics, an OpenGL-enabled environment will be required, therefore refer to the page on Remote Visualization for instructions on setting up a connection to the visualization node, and running VisIt with the VirtualGL wrapper. VisIt is an extremely versatile post-processor, and can be used as the primary visualization tool for a very wide range of applications and file formats.

Running VisIt on a visualization node

It is possible to run a VisIt client on your local workstation, with the data and render processing happening on a cluster node. However, is is easier to use one of the visualization nodes (chpclic1 or chpcviz1) to run the interface. In order to do this, load the module chpc/compmmech/VisIt/2.12.3-VNC, and start VisIt with the command vglrun visit.
