Altair Engineering has introduced Compute Manager 11.1, a high-performance computing (HPC) portal designed to help engineers simplify the setup, monitoring and visualisation of simulations.

A key feature is the ability to offer built-in 3D and 2D visualisation of HPC simulations while they are running and after they are finished. This enables users to see 3D animations in their web browsers using a plug-in and to view 2D plots in the form of line graphs.

A Results Visualisation Service allows users to visualise and manipulate 2D plots and curves from job results. This also allows on-demand access to the latest results from a running job and provides advanced diagnostic capabilities.

3D results can be animated and viewed with the in-browser Hyperview Player plug-in.

Compute Manager supports the viewing and management of job arrays — users can submit jobs that contain sub-jobs, each acting independently of the others. It allows easy access to each sub-job, with its individual properties and files, through a simple-to-navigate interface via the monitoring page.

Key features

  • Automation of job submissions and setup on distributed resources with easily configurable applications definitions
  • Monitoring of workloads on distributed resources both graphically and analytically
  • Easy-to-use web interface to submit and monitor jobs in PBS Professional, enabling secure and immediate access to distributed resources from virtually any internet-enabled device
  • Management of simulation jobs while visualising data and results remotely
  • Consistent job submission and monitoring interface
  • Automated staging of input and output files
  • Diagnosis of remote jobs without downloading huge results files
