Flows in dicehub are pipelines that allow to build and automate complex simulation tasks. Each task in a simulation can be customized and run on one or multiple machines.
On this page you can find more information about these topics:
Flow component types#
A flow has multiple component types to setup a case:
- flow: A flow is a set of stages to be executed during the run.
- stage: Flows can be organized into stages, for example "download all case files" or "prepare the geometry". Stages can run in parallel.
- task: A task is a set of commands to be executed in one specified stage.
- service: A service is similar to a task except that it can stay in the background during the whole flow. This is useful when a service is needed to monitor the progress of a task.
Basic flow example#
A very simple flow describes multiple stages. Every task is then executed based on the stage of a running flow.
Example for the
/.dicehub/dicehub-flow.yml file with the flow configuration matching the diagram:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24
