Introducing FieldView Update 16.1

Intelligent Light is excited to announce that the FieldView 16.1 release is ready for download.

Our FieldView 16.1 Update delivers dozens of major and minor improvements based on customer requests. We focused on the biggest little problems reported by our users, to deliver benefits to every user, because little problems are not little if they get in the way of your productivity.

As part of our development process we invited users who made feature requests to be part of our team. We spoke with them early in the design stage and then included them in the testing to be sure the new features met their needs.

Thanks to this mutual effort, FieldView 16.1 has the largest number of fulfilled feature requests and resolved issues in years. All FieldView users will benefit as there really is something for everyone in FieldView 16.1. Whether that's the new lightweight high-quality video export with control for frame rate, the easy way to flip which axis is up when using a predefined view, the logarithmic scale for colormaps with its "powers of ten" annotations, or one of the dozens of other improvements. Check the full list on the What's New in FieldView 16.1 document.

And because more and more users are adopting our extract based workflow ideas, we keep going further with features like the new VTK reader and a surface-based sampling method.

User input is a cornerstone of our support and product development. It feels really good to be able to deliver on so many common feature requests with this update. Beyond the feature requests, the input of users in our development process was incredibly valuable. It was fantastic to see how quickly users could experience a new capability and immediately give us feedback on changes and additions that would make it even more useful in day to day engineering.

Finally, to make it even easier for you, FieldView 16.1 will run with your FieldView 16 passwords.

FieldView 16.1 is available today from the Customer Center

ISAV 2016: In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization

In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization

This workshop is held in conjunction with SC16 and is chaired by Wes Bethel, Senior Computer Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  Intelligent Light's Earl Duque, PhD. serves on the organizing committee and both he and I are members of the program committee for the full day event.  The workshop features a series of short papers, presentations and discussions.  

Workshop Theme: 

The considerable interest in the HPC community regarding in situ analysis and visualization is due to several factors. First is an I/O cost savings, where data is analyzed/visualized while being generated without first storing to a file system. Second, the potential for increased accuracy, where fine temporal sampling of transient analysis might expose some complex behavior missed in coarse temporal sampling. Third, the ability to use all available resources, CPUs and accelerators, in the computation of analysis products.

The workshop brings together researchers, developers and practitioners from industry, academia, and government laboratories developing, applying, and deploying in situ methods in extreme scale, high performance computing. The goal is to present research findings, lessons learned, and insights related to developing and applying in situ methods and infrastructure across a range of science and engineering applications in HPC environments; to discuss topics like opportunities presented by new architectures, existing infrastructure needs, requirements, and gaps, and experiences to foster and enable in situ analysis and visualization; to serve as a "center of gravity" for researchers, practitioners, and users/consumers of in situ methods and infrastructure in the HPC space.

I am a co-author on this paper to be presented during the workshop, which describes a common interface that can be used to instrument simulations with multiple in situ infrastructures, including Libsim:

The SENSEI Generic In Situ Interface
(Utkarsh Ayachit, Brad Whitlock, Matthew Wolf, Burlen Loring, Berk Geveci, David Lonie and E. Wes Bethel)

The full workshop agenda is available from the ISAV2016 webpage.

Learn how to advance your CFD - Don't Miss IL at SC16

Intelligent Light will be in booth #4421 at SC16, the premier HPC event of the year. Intelligent Light will be contributing to the technical conference and on the exhibit floor where we will share the latest information about high performance CFD workflows using HPC. 

The considerable interest in the HPC community regarding in situ analysis and visualization is driven by the desire to save I/O costs and time, increase accuracy with fine sampling of transient analysis and full utilization of HPC resources. As a member of the ISAV Program Committee, Intelligent Light will participate in workshops bringing experience from real world work on ultra scale simulations. Join Intelligent Light presenters and authors in two sessions designed to develop in situ methods and share best practices.
