Our office IT has recently moved to cloud servers. Since the move there have been a number of times where TUFLOW (Classic) has stopped running mid-simulation without any errors or warnings. The model is running smoothly until it stops.. This has happened maybe 10 times over the last 2 weeks. Looking at the .tlf it seems to happen when the simulation is writing outputs, but this may not always be the case. We have tried running the same model reading and writing to the local machine and it worked fine. The model is a 76hr run time, so its a bit frustrating when it stops midway 😬 We have contacted our cloud service provider and they have completed some testing which was apparently all fine from their end. Anyone else had this issue or got any suggestions what might be the cause/solution? Thanks Eirian
Hi, Are there plans to support cloud computing? Perhaps through Amazon EC2 of Google Cloud compute. For Amazon you will need to build an Amazon Machine Image. I assume this would be based on Windows Server 2012, unless you plan on recompiling TUFLOW for Linux. I'm not sure if there's a way to port existing user licences, otherwise you could charge an hourly rate for licences through the AWS marketplace. Cloud computing would open up a number of opportunities: Model owners, such as local governments, who can't justify a TUFLOW licence could rent a licence at the same time as having a pre-configured server to simulate minor changes to their networks or test scenarios.Bigger and more complex models could be run faster, including post-processingSmaller consultancies who can't afford a TUFLOW licence could have access to a licence at lower costAs an engineer for a large organisation, these ideas might do me out of a job!
