Logfile Output Options

Hi Steve,

Could options be added for logfile output requests to only be written for must points or the last time step? A lot of time is spent writing these data files for large models, and more control would cut this down greatly. This could be done in the control section like the current feature for the plotfile, or more generally, it could be an attribute for each Output xml element.

On a related note, when and if you find time to add multi-thread capabilities to FEBio itself, writing data output on one thread while building the stiffness matrix for the next iteration on another would likely also be a big speedup.

Hi Scott,

I will look into the first request. I don't think it would be too hard to do.

I don't think your multi-threaded suggestion is as easy to realize as it may seem, but I will keep it in mind if we eventually start with MT in FEBio.

Hi Scott,

This is now possible. See this thread:
