Introduction to Analyzers

Analyzers are executables provided with VSim for post processing simulation-produced data. They can produce one or a few numbers, such as mode frequencies, or they can produce large data files, like a density field from a particle file. In the latter case, the data is written into VizSchema compliant HDF5 files, which can then be visualized in the Visualization pane.

Using an Analyzer

The analyzer executables are located in the same directory as the Vorpal executable. They may be used either within VSimComposer’s analysis tab Python environment or invoked on the command line. For command-line usage, one must have correctly set the environment as described in Setting Up Vorpal Command Line Environment of the User Guide.
