I’m a sysadmin trying to figure out some paraview issues. We have paraview 5.10 available on a linux (centos7) cluster - the EGL and osmesa precompiled packages (though we have similar problems with self compiled 5.8.4). We run it on cluster nodes as an mpi-based server and have users connect to it with their desktop client via tunnels. For the most part this works nicely and i have no issues doing some of the tutorials with k20x GPUs or on CPU with osmesa and it was used on several types of real world data without issues.
However one user is having issues with a stack of 1730 tif files (2867x1952+0+0 8-bit Grayscale, 9.2GB total). The stack loads, we can slice it and do some other basic operations with it. It renders as a volume. However any attempt to clip crashes - either with or without a memory overrun (compute nodes have 240GB of memory). Is this something that should be working or are we doing something silly? Is there good documentation for how to work with this type of data? Hard to search for this but i’ve seen some other posts complaining about crashes when clipping tif stacks but it’s all rather non-specific. I’m relatively naive when it comes to paraview so these may be silly questions but i’ll try to provide answers to any feedback.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
