I am new to Paraview and hoping to get some help with animations in ‘cave’ configuration.
I’m starting small with a sample blood flow dataset from ANL: https://www.alcf.anl.gov/user-guides/vis-paraview-red-blood-cell-tutorial.
When moving or scaling the dataset, the interaction is flawlessly smooth. However, stepping through the time series is quite slow, about 1 step/sec, even with geometry caching enabled.
Looking at the timer log, I see the task causing the slowdown is ‘FullRes Data Migration’, taking over half a second every time step. When running locally, I don’t see this step happening and the steps take much less time (~0.01 sec in the timer log after cached).
Any help speeding up this animation would be much appreciated!
Some basic info about my current set up:
- 35 x “worker” nodes with 16-core Intel Xeon CPU, 2 NVIDIA GTX 1080s, 64 Gb RAM
- 1 x “master” node, same system config
- 70 x 4K LG 3D TVs, arranged around a sphere (70 unique viewports)
- 40 Gbps network between nodes
- paraview v5.4.1
- 70 pvserver instances (2 per node, 1 per screen)
- data mounted from NFS but i have also tried copying to each node with same result - its not much data… yet
