Just out of interest really, but does anyone know what the green dots mean on the goal plot below? I get red ones too sometimes.
I've never seen anything like that. Do you have tabular saving or anything going on that it might be highlighting that or other goals (not shown) converging? I must not have paid for whatever "feature" that is
Ah, it could be the point at which each goal met its convergence criteria. This is a transient so I am plotting goals for information only; all I care about is the physical time. I thought initially it could be something to do with when certain warnings occurred, but goal convergence would make more sense if I assume that the red dots occur when a goal 'unconverges'.
That would make sense because it waits so many travels before it allows goals to be considered converged, then normally a bunch jump over in a group at the same iteration, then others later on. That would be why they are all coincident in time.
That could be an improvement in newer versions, I'm limited to 2009 so that might explain my never seeing it befroe.
I'll keep an eye out on subsequent runs and let you know if I discover anything else. I'm on 2011 so that ties in with what you say.
100% about this now. As the study has progressed one of the goals has fluctated between 'achieved' and the progress bar being at around the 90% mark (see red and green dots below).
this is a checkbox for "convergence history" I was looking at convergence graphs and decided "hey, let's click this box", sure enough I got little green circles too. I figured I'd update this In case you want to turn them on/off.
