ParaView on Eve frontends / envinf1

Eve frontends

Connect to a frontend node and start pvserver via singularity:

ssh -L
# OR: ssh -L
# frontend2 has a NVidia K80 vs a P4000 in frontend1
singularity exec --nv -B /data:/data /data/ogs/images/pv-v5.8.0-egl-py2.sif /opt/paraview/bin/pvserver

On your local machine:

  • Install ParaView 5.8.0
  • Connect to server
    • Add Server
      • Host: localhost
      • Port: 11111
  • Under Settings / Render View set Remote Render Threshold to a small value (e.g. 1) to ensure remote rendering

The port tunneling with ssh is required as these ports are blocked from the firewall. If port 11111 is already in use by another user just try a different port, e.g. 11112: pvserver -sp=11112. Do not forget to tunnel this port with SSH too!


envinf1 has a NVidia K20m. Same instructions as for eve but port tunneling is not necessary:

singularity exec --nv /data/shared/container/pv-v5.8.0-egl-py2.sif /opt/paraview/bin/pvserver
