SNL: Streamlines do not preserve length/time across processes.
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
We have noticed that often when making streamlines in a parallel job, that the calculation is much longer than in serial, and that the filter sometimes never finishes. Further investigation revieled that the streamlines themselves are often longer.
To test this further, I made a vector field that is a vortex that spins around the Z axis (see the pvs file attached). When you make a streamline in the field in parallel, every time the stream crosses a processer boundary, you can see that the length and time parameters are reset to 0. You can verify this by the length of the streamline and by drawing the time field on it.
