Task farming: The Dynamo Use Case


The demo below shows an astrophysical application where the induction equation for mean magnetic fields in a turbulent stellar plasma is solved by the code DYNAMO (author Detlef Elstner, AIP).

The large parameter space makes it necessary to perform many runs to scan the parameter space (see Usecase Dynamo).

The runs are submitted to different hosts across the AstroGrid-D by Job Submission Data Language scripts ( JSDL), and monitored using the information service STELLARIS.

The resulting surface magnetic fields are visualized with the Interactive Data Language ( IDL).

Details about the different steps can be found in this presentation (4.2MB) (Iliya Nickelt, AIP).
