Memory requirement



This is to clarify that when simulations and memory requirement check is done, four memory requirements are displayed.
Initialization and mesh: 4.059 GB
Running simulation: 6.596 GB
Data collection: 9.134 GB
Monitor data saved to fsp file: 2.058 GB

I want to confirm that whether they are RAM requirement or Hard disk memory requirement.


The value reported in the “memory requirement” check is the amount of RAM needed to run the simulation.



In my experience, it is important the installed RAM in the computer should exceed the first 3 memory values and the last value will give you the rough estimate of the file size that will be stored in the disk once the simulation is complete.
