Viewing the workflow's results¶
Basic output files¶
Once your job completes, you may notice a few extra files in your output. One of them is
simmate_summary.yaml, which contains some quick information for you.
The information in this file is a snippet of what's available in the database:
_DATABASE_TABLE_: StaticEnergy _TABLE_ID_: 1 _WEBSITE_URL_: http://127.0.0.1:8000/workflows/static-energy/vasp/mit/1 band_gap: 4.9924 chemical_system: Cl-Na computer_system: digital-storm conduction_band_minimum: 4.306 corrections:  created_at: 2022-09-10 14:32:35.857088+00:00 density: 2.1053060843576104 density_atomic: 0.04338757298280908 directory: /home/jacksund/Documents/spyder_wd/simmate-task-e9tddsyw energy: -27.25515165 energy_fermi: -0.63610593 energy_per_atom: -3.40689395625 formula_anonymous: AB formula_full: Na4 Cl4 formula_reduced: NaCl id: 42 is_gap_direct: true lattice_stress_norm: 8.428394235089161 lattice_stress_norm_per_atom: 1.0535492793861452 nelements: 2 nsites: 8 run_id: 3a1bd23f-705c-4947-96fa-3740865ed12d site_force_norm_max: 1.4907796617877505e-05 site_forces_norm: 2.257345786537809e-05 site_forces_norm_per_atom: 2.8216822331722614e-06 spacegroup_id: 225 updated_at: 2022-09-10 14:33:09.419637+00:00 valence_band_maximum: -0.6864 volume: 184.38459332974767 volume_molar: 13.87987468758872 workflow_name: static-energy.vasp.mit workflow_version: 0.10.0
Other workflows will also write out plots for you. For example,
electronic-structure workflows will calculate a band structure using Materials Project settings, and write an image of your final band structure to
band_structure.png. These extra files and plots vary for each workflow, but they make checking your results nice and quick.
The website view¶
simmate_summary.yaml file, there is the
_WEBSITE_URL_. You can copy/paste this URL into your browser and view your results in an interactive format. Just make sure you are running your local server first:
Then open the link given by
Remember that the server and your database are limited to your local computer. Trying to access a URL on a computer that doesn't share the same database file will not work -- so you may need to copy your database file from the cluster to your local computer. Or even better -- if you would like to access results through the internet, then you have to switch to a cloud database (which is covered in a later tutorial).
Advanced data analysis¶
We can analyze our final structure and the full results with Simmate's toolkit and database. Accessing these require Python, so our next tutorial will introduce you to Python by directly interacting with the toolkit. We will then work our way up to accessing our database in a follow-up tutorial.
