MultiPlanet Documentation

multi-planet manages the exectution of a suite of VPLanet simulations that were built with VSPACE. multi-planet performs simulations across multi-core computers and can be used to restart jobs that fail for any reason. This repository also includes mpstatus, which returns the current status of the parameter sweep.


To maximize MultiPlanet’s power, run VSPACE with the -bp option to automatically build the BigPlanet archive immediately after the simulations finish. Then create BigPlanet files from the archive as needed, and use BigPlanet’s scripting functions to extract vectors and matrices for plotting, statistical analyses, etc.
