ParaView - Utilizing OpenGL in a server/client setup
I have a question about OpenGL support in a ParaView server/client setup. My goal is to utilize our cluster for rendering so that my local workstation can act as a thin client or user interface. From my understanding, this is how such a setup usually works: The first step is to initialize a ParaView server on a cluster node. This is done by submitting a pilot job to the local grid system. The job runs a small ParaView server init script executing pvsever. pvserver returns a ParaView session URL. The user enters the URL in his local ParaView on his local workstation to establish a connection to the ParaView server node. Let's assume that the server node supports OpenGL and a XServer is up and running. How is the pilot job supposed to initialize a X display? (From my understanding, ParaView needs a X display to invoke a X window for creating OpenGL content on the graphics hardware.)
