Catalyst should not do work if not necessary
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
Catalyst should not convert the grid if only ParaView Live is enabled and there is no ParaView Live client connected. I think this can be added on inputdescription.GetIfGridIsNecessary(). The catalyst script passes frequencies for each input and for paraview live. Work is done only if the timestep matches the given frequency.
An extra test can be added for ParaView Live: Work is done only if the time step matches the input frequency and ParaView Live client is connected.
for the discussion that led to this bug report.
