Hey All - I've got a rather newbie question about how the new DIVA 4.0 'BatchRunner' component works.
At first I thought this might be a way to run multiple different simulations for different files, i.e. if you have multiple 'Annual daylight' components on the same canvas with different names. But this doesn't seem to be the case?
It seems like it's mainly used for running multiple camera simulations, which run multiple simulations from a single component? And if this is the case, it looks like a .dlt file needs to be in the run folder before it will write the .group.bat file. My basic understanding is the .dlt file gets produced after the simulation is complete, so wouldn't you have to batch it before that?
I'm looking for a little clarification on how the batch runner works, and am asking a larger question on how to batch multiple runs together to run in parallel.
Your first guess is the right idea -- you just have to write the annual daylight jobs to the same parent folder, e.g. "MyBatch\Run1", "MyBatch\Run2", etc. Then give the name "MyBatch" to the BatchRunner. It will run all the sub folders in parallel (unless Sub is set to false).
Jon - Thanks, that makes sense!
