What is not supported

In our regression test for Pelegant, we excluded certain types of tests, which are not supported in this version of Pelegant:

  1. All of the tests tracking beam with one particle (or the number of particles is less than the number of processors) were excluded, as such a simulation will not benefit from the parallelization approach we employed.

  2. The second type of tests we excluded are those needing slice analysis. They are not supported in Pelegant at present.

It is suggested to run a simulation with a small workload first before trying the final time-intensive simulation. Also, use of WATCH elements with FLUSH_INTERVAL=1 can be helpful in verifying that progress is being made. We listed the commands have been tested in appendices. Users can report bugs with all the input files to or
