Best Answer

You can use suspend command in a command prompt window (CMD) from the same directory from which the job was submitted. To do that more easily, follow this instruction:

1. Going to the working directory

Open the folder of your current work (where .inp and other during-analysis files are written).

2. Running CMD

As you hold the SHIFT key, right-click on any empty space of your explorer window and select Open Command window here:

In the newer versions of Windows 10, PowerShell is introduced in place of CMD. Therefore, you should select the Open PowerShell window here instead.

3. Entering the “suspend” command

Type this command to suspend the job execution. If the name of the job submitted is “CAEassist”, you should type:
Abaqus job= CAEassist suspend
Entering Suspend Command
And press Enter.
This allows you to review matters and check whether to continue the analysis by Abaqus solver or not. A suspended job can be continued by using the option resume:
Abaqus job= CAEassist resume
However, if you then decide to terminate the job completely, use the option terminate instead:
Abaqus job= CAEassist terminate
A run can be terminated using the terminate option without having to suspend the job in the first place. This option is also available graphically in the Job Manager window too:
