Information to provide when troubleshooting simulations

When submitting a question about running a simulation, be sure to include the info:

  1. Indicate which PyLith version you are using along with whether you are using the binary, container, or building from source.
  2. Describe what you are trying to do
    • Overview of the boundary value problem (diagrams are very helpful)
    • Software used to generate the mesh (including version information)
    • Cell type (tri, quad, hex, or tet)
    • Type of fault: prescribed slip or spontaneous rupture
  3. Attach the PyLith parameters .json file generated by running pylith or pylith_dumpparameters.
  4. Send the entire error message, not just what you think is important (entire log is best).
