How to run Paraview as a parallel remote server?
Last Updated 5 years ago

Connecting to pvserver is not trivial.

Below are the steps to follow. You will need two Linux (Putty @ windows) terminals which are referred to as T1 and T2.

T1
ssh USERNAME@opuntia.cacds.uh.edu
srun -n 2 -t 00:10:00 --pty /bin/bash -l


T2
ssh -L 8001:compute-0-0:8001 -X USERNAME @opuntia.cacds.uh.edu


T1
module load paraview/4.3.1 intelmpi
mpirun -np 2 pvserver --server-port=8001


Local paraview (v4.3.1) on mac/windows
file>connect>edit/add server
opu, clinet/server, localhost,8001
Save>connect
