Scheduling a TSDB update or mesh job

Run on

This dropdown list allows the selection of a computer or group of computers on which the relevant job will be run. For a single licence or a standalone computer, the only item in the list will be This computer. If the local agent is connected to a Coordinator, the list will include agent groups defined by the Coordinator, plus the option Any computer.

An agent group may comprise one or many computers. For each group, the list shows the total number of free slots in that group or, if all slots are busy, the number of jobs on the Coordinator that are ready to run and could be assigned to an agent in that group. The latter is only a rough guide to how busy the agent group is, as it includes jobs assigned to Any computer which might actually get assigned to a different group. It also ignores the fact that an agent might belong to more than one group.

An agent group will only be listed if at least one computer in the group is currently connected to the Coordinator.

It is possible to configure agent groups so that they will accept jobs only from a specified database(s). If the currently open database is not one of these, the agent group will not be listed and jobs submitted to Any computer will not run on that group.

Store results

This section will be disabled when scheduling a meshing job or a TSDB update.

The options for storing simulation results are:

If sharing results, the local agent must be configured in a Workgroup, the Workgroup Coordinator must be available and connected to the local agent, and the Workgroup Coordinator service username, your username and the usernames of other users you wish to share with must have appropriate permissions to access the remote results root. If the Coordinator is incorrectly configured, or the network folder is not accessible, the simulation will usually fail when the Workgroup Coordinator attempts to download results to the remote results root.

Multi-threading limits

Options for setting the limit on the number of threads used by an individual job.

Multi-threading is not currently possible for meshing and these settings have no effect for a mesh job, which uses one thread.

The limit applies to every simulation job created for the run, but may be changed if the job is rescheduled (using the Reschedule button in the Job Control Window).

The limit on the number of threads to be used by all active jobs running is set in the Agent Options accessed via the Manage Job Agents dialog.


The options for when to start the job are:

The job will only actually start at the specified time if there are no jobs ahead of it in the queue that are ready to run when the specified time is reached.
