The executable is 'nciplot'.
For use in parallel NCIPLOT has been implemented with OpenMP and therefore we suggest running on a single compute nodes using 12 cores as shown in the submission script below.
Example Job Submission Script
The NCIPLOT job should be submitted from the directory in which the input files are stored. An example NCIPLOT job submission script is shown below.
#!/bin/bash --login #PBS -N nciplot_job # Select 1 nodes (maximum of 24 cores) #PBS -l select=1 #PBS -l walltime=01:00:00 # Replace this with your budget code #PBS -A budget module add nciplot # Move to directory that script was submitted from export PBS_O_WORKDIR=$(readlink -f $PBS_O_WORKDIR) cd $PBS_O_WORKDIR export OMP_NUM_THREADS=12 aprun -n 1 -d 12 nciplot file.nci file.out
