The Clusters page allows you to add a new cluster to your account and make it available for creating simulations and executing them. If you do not have at least one valid cluster created and linked to your account, you will not be able to create or run any simulations.
A cluster is the physical computing setup used to run a single simulation. Clusters can either be "local", where they consist of one or more machines connected to the same LAN, or "cloud", where they are one or more machines in the cloud controlled by the "SVL Web User Interface". A simulation that you create must designate the specific cluster on which the SVL Simulator binary executable will run.
Open the SVL Simulator executable and click "Link to Cloud". If this button is not available, look in the top right to make sure the simulator is Online. If Offline, click the button to toggle. You may need to toggle off and on if a connection is not working.
When the browser opens and you are taken to the SVL Simulator online interface, log in then navigate to "Clusters".
Enter a name for your local cluster and click "Create cluster".
To edit a local cluster, click the three-dotted menu at the top right corner of a cluster card, and then click "Edit". You can then rename your cluster, or if there are multiple instances attached to the cluster, delete an instance. Be sure to click "Save" after making any changes.
To delete a local cluster, click the three-dotted menu at the top right corner of a cluster card, and then click "Delete".
