Paraview across multiple nodes on a cluster?

Is it possible to run Paraview across multiple nodes in a cluster? We know about running the program on multiple cores within one node, but we can’t find anything about using multiple physical machines for the same job.

Thanks for the help,


We really want to do this as well. I hope someone answers. In the mean time, how do you run it on multiple cores please?

Yes, absolutely you can do this with ParaView - it is one of the core reasons for ParaView existing.

ParaView uses MPI to run on clusters. If you are able to run MPI applications on your cluster, the process is largely the same for ParaView. For more information, please see Chapter 15 of the ParaView Guide.

Section 4 of ParaView Tutorial also has details and examples to get started with.
