Pause and Resume Processing

SURE can be paused and resumed. Also, the process can be resumed after shutdown.

SURE saves the processing state while processing, so that it can be continued at certain entry points (see right column) when being paused or in case a computer crash (e.g. power failure) occurs. From these entry points, SURE can be continued either with graphical user interface or the command line. Besides this, also a "Soft Pause" option is available in the command line.

Graphical User Interface

  1. Click the Play/Resume botton on the lower right
  2. Wait until SURE reaches it's next entry point for cancelling
  3. Resume processing clicking again on the Play/Resume button
    (closing and reopening SURE before is possible)

Command Line

Cancel and Resume (matches the pause in the graphical user interface)

  1. Click into the running process window
  2. Hit Ctrl-C or close the command window
  3. Resume processing without passing the parameters again by 
    1. calling "sure.exe -no_gui" in the processing directory or
    2. calling "sure.exe -basepath C:\MyProcessingDirectory" from another directory

Soft Pause and Resume (immediate effect)

  1. Click into the running process window
  2. Hit the "Pause" button on your keyboard
  3. Hit the "Enter" button on your keyboard to continue
