Running OpenSeesSP

Post by castonguay.pierre » Tue Jul 07, 2009 11:51 am


I've tried (unsuccessfully) to install OpenSeesSP on Windows Server 2008. I'm at the point where I can actually open OpenSeesSP and write commands... except that when I write:

mpirun -np 4 OpenSeesSingleParallelInterpreter mymodel.tcl

I get the message that mpirun is not a valid command. What could be the cause of this?

I'm sorry if this is a pretty elementary question... I have no experience with parallel processing (hence the reason I'm trying to use OpenSeesSP and not MP)

Any help is much appreciated.

mpiexec -np ....

It should be some configuration problems about the enviromental variables.

check your command console with the command

make sure the path includes the mpi bin folder
