Avizo software is a powerful, multifaceted tool for visualizing, manipulating, and understanding scientific and industrial data.
Avizo caches license server information locally in the file ~/.config/FEI/Avizo.conf. Check the contents of this file if you are getting license errors when starting Avizo, or if Avizo hangs for a long time when starting. The file should contain the following:
Help -> License Manager -> FNP license server
To run this software interactively in a Linux environment run the commands:
isub -m 8GB
module load avizo
In order to run avizo 8.0 or higher, a minimum of 8 GB memory is required.
If you are trying to run Avizo remotely (via ssh or NX) please note that some versions of Avizo may not work well with NX. Let us know if you have problems. For version 9.0, you will see a message about the security context. Answer "n" to the question to get Avizo to run. We are working with the vendor to remove this question.
