ParaView on Eve frontends / envinf1

Eve frontends

Connect to a frontend node and start pvserver via singularity:

ssh frontend1.eve.ufz.de -L 11111:frontend1.eve.ufz.de:11111
# OR: ssh frontend2.eve.ufz.de -L 11111:frontend2.eve.ufz.de:11111
# 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

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

ssh 141.65.34.100
pvserver
# or with Singularity:
singularity exec --nv /data/shared/container/pv-v5.8.0-egl-py2.sif /opt/paraview/bin/pvserver

envinf2

envinf2 has a NVidia Quadro RTX 5000. Similar instructions as for eve but port tunneling is not necessary:

ssh 141.65.34.90
pvserver
# or with Singularity:
singularity exec --nv /data/shared/container/pv-v5.9.0-egl-py3.sif /opt/paraview/bin/pvserver
