Process List Page

The "Processes" page of the main dialog displays the process list. The process list shows all jobs that are or have been running, from the current project. It is organized in four columns:

Process Display

Variation (Subvar):
The variation within the current project, and the used view for images or the measuring field for numerical simulations.

Type:
The type of simulation. Possible values are:

 rpict Batch image renderings
 rview Preview image renderings
 numeric Numerical renderings

Status:
The current status of the simulation. Possible values are:

 running The simulation is currently active
 scheduled The simulation is waiting for an external condition to become true before it can start
 finished The simulation was successfull
 failed the simulation has encountered an error
 unknown The system tried to terminate the simulation but could not find it's process
 terminated The simulation has been terminated on request by the user before completion
 suspended The simulation is still running, but currently set on hold on request by the user. This is only possible for simulation running on unix based systems

Start Time:
The time when the simulation was started. This field is constant during a running simulation, but gets reset when the simulation is restarted.

[Process Log Window]

Process Manipulation

Info... This button opens the process status window displaying more detailed information about the currently selected process

Convert...
If the selected process has a final image or a raw image rendered and stored to disk, then this button will be active. The new dialog allows to display and convert that image to other formats.

Analyze... (on Unix Systems, on Windows Systems)
If the selected process has a final image or a raw image rendered and stored to disk, then this button will be active. A seperate application gets started, which allows to analyze the image.

Kill...
Terminate the currently selected process, after a confirmation request.

Suspend
Suspend the currently selected process. A suspended process remains active, but it's execution is stopped until the Continue option is selected for it.
This functionality is only available for simulations running on unix based systems.

Continue
Restart a suspended process. The process will resume execution at the position where it was stopped by the Suspend option.
This functionality is only available for simulations running on unix based systems.
