Table Of Contents


There are two levels of diagnostics, the Error and the Warning. The check process continues even if it has and Error. A diagnostics has a key, S003 for example, which is composed of a single letter and a unique number for each letter. The G series stand for generic, the S for SIDS and U for User.

The checking process always starts with G checks, then S checks, then U checks if it has been requested.

Generic diagnostics

The first checks are the generic checks. VAL performs very low level controls on the node structure, node name and CGNSLibraryVersion. This latter is an exception, it is the only SIDS-related data to be verified. As a matter of fact, CGNSLibraryVersion is more an implementation node than a SIDS node.

SIDS diagnostics

The core checks are SIDS checks. All the CGNS/SIDS document requirements are inspected, default values are reported.

User defined diagnostics

A user defined grammar is identified by a key.

Diagnostics list
