6 Running scheduling simulations

This chapter describes how to run Haizea in simulation mode. Since the Quickstart Guide (Chapter 4) already provides a tutorial-like introduction to running simulations, this chapter is meant mostly as a reference guide, and covers the main simulation and scheduling options. However, it does not cover all possible options in the configuration file (a description of all options and their valid values can be found in Appendix B). It also refers to scheduling algorithms that are not currently explained in the manual (they are described in some of the Haizea scientific publications, but these might be hard to swallow). Future versions of the Haizea manual will include a description of the main scheduling algorithms used, to better orient your choice of scheduling options. Finally, this chapter also covers how to run multiple unattended simulations.
