      INT: Integration of Mattijs' collocated parallel IO additions · 85f12ff5
      Andrew Heather authored
      Original commit message:
      Parallel IO: New collated file format
      When an OpenFOAM simulation runs in parallel, the data for decomposed fields and
      mesh(es) has historically been stored in multiple files within separate
      directories for each processor.  Processor directories are named 'processorN',
      where N is the processor number.
      This commit introduces an alternative "collated" file format where the data for
      each decomposed field (and mesh) is collated into a single file, which is
      written and read on the master processor.  The files are stored in a single
      directory named 'processors'.
      The new format produces significantly fewer files - one per field, instead of N
      per field.  For large parallel cases, this avoids the restriction on the number
      of open files imposed by the operating system limits.
      The file writing can be threaded allowing the simulation to continue running
      while the data is being written to file.  NFS (Network File System) is not
      needed when using the the collated format and additionally, there is an option
      to run without NFS with the original uncollated approach, known as
      The controls for the file handling are in the OptimisationSwitches of
          //- Parallel IO file handler
          //  uncollated (default), collated or masterUncollated
          fileHandler uncollated;
          //- collated: thread buffer size for queued file writes.
          //  If set to 0 or not sufficient for the file size threading is not used.
          //  Default: 2e9
          maxThreadFileBufferSize 2e9;
          //- masterUncollated: non-blocking buffer size.
          //  If the file exceeds this buffer size scheduled transfer is used.
          //  Default: 2e9
          maxMasterFileBufferSize 2e9;
      When using the collated file handling, memory is allocated for the data in the
      thread.  maxThreadFileBufferSize sets the maximum size of memory in bytes that
      is allocated.  If the data exceeds this size, the write does not use threading.
      When using the masterUncollated file handling, non-blocking MPI communication
      requires a sufficiently large memory buffer on the master node.
      maxMasterFileBufferSize sets the maximum size in bytes of the buffer.  If the
      data exceeds this size, the system uses scheduled communication.
      The installation defaults for the fileHandler choice, maxThreadFileBufferSize
      and maxMasterFileBufferSize (set in etc/controlDict) can be over-ridden within
      the case controlDict file, like other parameters.  Additionally the fileHandler
      can be set by:
      - the "-fileHandler" command line argument;
      - a FOAM_FILEHANDLER environment variable.
      A foamFormatConvert utility allows users to convert files between the collated
      and uncollated formats, e.g.
          mpirun -np 2 foamFormatConvert -parallel -fileHandler uncollated
      An example case demonstrating the file handling methods is provided in:
      The work was undertaken by Mattijs Janssens, in collaboration with Henry Weller.

      ENH: consolidate, cleanup some string methods · cb049ffe
      Mark Olesen authored
      - consolidate word::validated() into word::validate() and also allow
        as short form for string::validate<word>(). Also less confusing than
        having similarly named methods that essentially do the same thing.
      - more consistent const access when iterating over strings
      - add valid(char) for keyType and wordRe

      ENH: added classes() method to objectRegistry/IOobjectList · 4001a157
      Mark Olesen authored
      - provides a summary hash of classes used and their associated object names.
        The HashTable representation allows us to leverage various HashTable
        methods. This hashed summary view can be useful when querying
        particular aspects, but is most useful when reducing the objects in
        consideration to a particular subset. For example,
            const wordHashSet interestingTypes
            IOobjectList objects(runTime, runTime.timeName());
            HashTable<wordHashSet> classes = objects.classes();
            // Or do just the opposite:
        Can also use the underlying HashTable filter methods
      STYLE: use templated internals to avoid findString() when matching subsets

      ENH: improve objectRegistry functionality (issue #322) · 57e70437
      mark authored
      - Recursive searching for objects within a registry is now optional
        (previous it was always done).
        A recursive search effectively blocks the construction of sub-sub-registries
        if their names are 'masked' by some parent level sub-registry with
        the same name! (BUG)
      - Recursive search is now turned OFF by default, which makes it consistent
        with dictionary and probably causes the least number of surprises.
      Various new convenience methods added:
      - returns a non-const reference.
        For example,
            volScalarField& U = mesh().lookupObjectRef<volScalarField>("U");
        Instead of
            volScalarField& U = const_cast<volScalarField&>
      - returns a const pointer, and nullptr on failure.
        For example,
            const volScalarField* Uptr = mesh().lookupObjectPtr<volScalarField>("U");
            if (Uptr)
                const volScalarField& U = *Uptr;
        Instead of
            if (mesh().foundObject<volScalarField>("U"))
                const volScalarField& U = mesh().lookupObject<volScalarField>("U");
      - returns a non-const pointer, and nullptr on failure.
        For example,
            volScalarField* Uptr = mesh().lookupObjectRefPtr<volScalarField>("U");
            if (Uptr)
                volScalarField& U = *Uptr;  // use as reference
                (*Uptr) = ...;              // or use directly
        Instead of
            if (mesh().foundObject<volScalarField>("U"))
                volScalarField& U = const_cast<volScalarField&>
      - now works with template parameters and with regular expression
        matching as well.
        For example,
            wordList names  = mesh().sortedNames();
            wordList fields = mesh().sortedName<volScalarField>();
        Instead of
            wordList names  = mesh().sortedNames();
            wordList fields = mesh().names<volScalarField>();

      This was causing same event number on both U and grad(U) which meant
