Investigation and Feasibility Study of Linux and Windows in the Computational Processing Power of ANSYS Software
M.A. Jozv Vaziri, Hamed Khosravi
The operating system is a general program which manages a variety of hardware and software resources. Most operating systems such as Windows, Linux and, etc. are usually designed graphically. Of course, these have the advantages and disadvantages, the user can choose each of these operating systems according to your type of usage. The most important and most used operating systems are Windows and Linux which are used in the various applications. Today, in the various industries, the fast data processing has become an important problem in the application software such as ANSYS and etc. It may take days or weeks to process a large model in the ANSYS software which reduces the efficiency. The general idea of this research is to select the best operating system which has the best performance and speed in executing ANSYS software files. For this purpose, first, ANSYS fluent software executes on Windows 7 and Linux CentOS 7 operating systems with the same hardware and four processing files run in it and then, the software performance is compared in the serial and parallel modes in both operating systems and finally, the best operating system is selected which has the highest performance and speed in executing ANSYS software files after comparing.
