-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''​. ​ This will get you a serial version of VisIt, which is adequate for processing smaller data sets. +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/​compmech/​VisIt/​2.12.3-VNC'',​ and start VisIt with the command ''​vglrun visit''​. ​ This will get you a serial version of VisIt, which is adequate for processing smaller data sets.
