After the job finished, we can connect to DCV on the ParallelCluster head-node and visualize the result.
For smokeview rendering on a GPU instance is not necessary. Thus, we picked a master node that does not have a GPU. If you want to learn more how to (e.g.) run DCV in a container from your ParallelCluster setup, visit the workshop dcv-batch.workshop.aws/.
We’ll use the
pcluster command to generate a token.
pcluster dcv connect pc-fsx gs-k ~/.ssh/lab-3-key
Open the resulting link within a browser (e.g. Firefox) and accept the risk - as DCV uses a self-signed SSL certificate by default.
Once you see the empty desktop, please click on activities in the top left ((1)) and open a terminal ((2)).
Now we source the environment variables.
source /fsx/fds-smv/bin/FDS6VARS.sh source /fsx/fds-smv/bin/SMV6VARS.sh
Navigate to the results of your run and open the
To visualize the smoke, select
SOOT DENSITY as shown below.
THe animation should look like this:
