There are several modes of running GSSHA. Each of these is for a particular situation, and some require specific hardware in order to be useful. Each of these alternate run modes is set from the command line when you run a project. These alternate run modes are:

Parallelization Models

  • OpenMP - Run a shared-memory parallelized version of GSSHA.
  • MPI - Run a distributed-memory parallelized version of GSSHA. Works on 32- or 64-bit Microsoft(R) Windows(R) machines. Must have the mpich routines installed and running. Compiled as a special exectable for 32- and 64-bit.

Control Models

  • Batch - Run several versions of a single simulation. Can run in serial, OpenMP, or MPI mode. Use -b command line option.
  • Calibration - Run GSSHA using the Shuffled Complex Evolution calibration routine as the controller. Can only run in serial mode. Use -c command line option.
  • Monte Carlo - Run GSSHA using a Monte Carlo calibration routine as the controller. Can run in serial, OpenMP, or MPI mode. Use -m command line option.
  • Efficient Local Search - Run GSSHA using the Levenberg-Marquardt (LM) local search method, or the Secant LM (SLM) method, an efficiency enhancement to the LM method, calibration routine as the controller. Use -slm command line option.
  • Multistart - Run GSSHA using the Multistart stochastic global optimization calibration routine, which uses the LM/SLM method for local searches as the controller. Use -ms command line option.
  • Trajectory Repulsion - Run GSSHA using the Trajectory Repulsion stochastic global optimization calibration routine, which uses the LM/SLM method for local searches as the controller. Use -tr command line option.
  • Effective and Efficient Stochastic Global Optimization - Run GSSHA using the Multilevel Single Linkage (MLSL) stochastic global optimization calibration routine, which uses the LM/SLM method for local searches as the controller. Use -mlsl command line option.
