Parameter Name UnitsType Default

Description






N_SLICES long 10

number of slices






START_PID long -1

starting particleID for particles to dump






END_PID long -1

ending particleID for particles to dump






INTERVAL long 1

interval for data output (in turns)






START_PASS long 0

pass on which to start






END_PASS long -1

pass on which to end (inclusive). Ignored if negative.






FILENAME STRING

output filename, possibly incomplete (see below)






LABEL STRING

output label






INDEX_OFFSET long 0

Offset for file indices for sequential file naming.






REFERENCE_FREQUENCY double -1

If non-zero, the indicated frequency is used to define the bucket center for purposes of computing time offsets.






DISABLE short 0

If nonzero, no output will be generated.






USE_DISCONNECT short 0

If nonzero, files are disconnected between each write operation. May be useful for parallel operation. Ignored otherwise.






GROUP string NULL

Optionally used to assign an element to a group, with a user-defined name. Group names will appear in the parameter output file in the column ElementGroup






NB: This element has very poor parallel efficiency. Hence, the START_PASS, END_PASS, and INTERVAL options should be used to limit the frequency of computations to the minimum needed.
