How do I do parallel processing on a cluster?
The Wavefront Batch Tracer can be executed in parallel on a MPP (Massively Parallel Processor) architecture, a cluster architecture or a network of workstations, e.g. Linux PCs.
The Wavefront Master Batch Tracer will divide the simulation into a number of separate, independent jobs, each consisting of one or more shots. One job runs on one node.
Each node runs an instance of the NORSAR-3D Batch Tracer module and the node must therefore have access to the software disc, project data disc and must be able to communicate with the license server.
The license server can be any machine in the network as long as it is reachable by all nodes and machines running NORSAR-3D.
