HEEDS MDO 2015: Compute Resources

The analysis definition process has been upgraded to streamline the definition. The new design facilitates data reuse, simplifies the definition steps and results in a reduced setup time. All the information related to communication with different compute resources has been removed from the analysis setup and moved into its own section.

ComputeResources-1

You simply define each of the compute resources once and with one click choose which compute resource to use for an analysis (see image below which shows a list of all available compute resources in the drop down). Once defined, this definition is available for all subsequent projects.

ComputeResource-2

This feature provides the following advantages:

  • Easily create and maintain the execution and parallel details associated with a hardware resource (cluster, cloud, etc.) in one area of the product.
  • Select from already-defined compute resources to simplify the definition at the analysis level.
  • Quickly access parallel detail data through the use of icons on the process graph.
  • Switch between serial and parallel mode with one click. This allows you to run a parallel project in serial mode to debug the project setup without having to make any changes to the analysis details.
