Specify the number of processors per iterator server when Dakota is run in parallel

Alias: none

Argument(s): INTEGER


An important feature for component-based iterators is that execution of sub-iterator runs may be performed concurrently. The optional processors_per_iterator specification supports user override of the automatic parallel configuration for the number of processors in each iterator server. That is, if the automatic configuration is undesirable for some reason, the user can enforce a desired server size at the iterator parallelism level. Currently, hybrid, multi_start, and pareto_set component-based iterators support concurrency in their sub-iterators. Refer to ParallelLibrary and the Parallel Computing chapter of the Users Manual[5] for additional information.
