Output files

While some information of a run is written into STDOUT to monitor its progress, most outputs are printed into dedicated files identified by the chosen TAG extension. These files can be parsed and analysed using the python classes. The following pages describe the content and the structure of the different type of output files:

  1. Most of the information found in STDOUT is also written to the log-file called log.TAG. In addition, this file contains all input parameters, truncation, information on other output files, and some results like the time averaged energies (when l_average=.true.).

  2. There are several ascii files that contain the time-evolution of integrated quantities (energies, heat fluxes, rotation rate, Reynolds numbers, etc.) that are systematically produced:

  3. There are additional conditional time series that contain the time-evolution of other physical quantities that depend on the chosen input parameters:

  4. Time-averaged radial profiles:

  5. Radial profiles of the transport properties of the reference state (those files will only be produced when the appropriate input option is chosen):

  6. Kinetic energy, magnetic energy and temperature/entropy spectra:

  7. Output snapshot that contains the 3-D components of the velocity field, the magnetic field and the temperature/entropy. Those files are named graphic files G_#.TAG (or G_ave.TAG for its time-averaged counterpart).

  8. Time evolution of some chosen fields. Those files are named movie files: *_mov.TAG.

  9. Checkpoints outputs that will allow the code to restart. Those files are named restart files: checkpoint_end.TAG.

  10. Time-evolution of the poloidal and toroidal coefficients at different depths:

  11. Additional specific outputs:
