StatusWriteInterval & probeswriteInterval

Asked by atevewr on 2010-02-07

Hi All
I am trying to simulate the experiments of Openwns.
Can you please explain me the significance of WNS.statusWriteInterval and WNS.probesWriteInterval.

Thankyou

Hi,

WNS.statusWriteInterval decides how often the status file output/WNSStatus.dat is updated and the status probes (wns.memory & wns.simTimePerRealTime) are collected. See also http://docs.openwns.org/simulationPlatform/EvaluationFramework.html#memory-and-cpu-time-probing. WNSStatus.dat includes the information how much simulation time has passed.

WNS.probesWriteInterval decides how often collected measurement data is written to the hard disk (output/*.dat). It should not be set too small or else the simulator will be busy writing to disk all the time. Having collected measures before the end of the simulation can help debugging etc.

Both times are set in seconds real time.

Greats,

Maciej Muehleisen
