Maximum number of logs criteria to stop simulation


MaximumNumberOfLogs is a property of a Configset object. This property sets the maximum number of logs criteria to stop a simulation.

A simulation stops when it meets any of the criteria specified by StopTime, MaximumNumberOfLogs, or MaximumWallClock. However, if you specify the OutputTimes property of the SolverOptions property of the Configset object, then StopTime and MaximumNumberOfLogs are ignored. Instead, the last value in OutputTimes is used as the StopTime criteria, and the length of OutputTimes is used as the MaximumNumberOfLogs criteria.


Applies toObject: Configset
Data typedouble
Data valuesPositive value. Default is Inf.


Set Maximum Number of Logs Criteria to Stop Simulation

Set the maximum number of logs that triggers a simulation to stop.

Create a model object named cell and save it in a variable named modelObj.

modelObj  = sbiomodel('cell');

Retrieve the configuration set from modelObj and save it in a variable named configsetObj.

configsetObj = getconfigset(modelObj);

Configure the simulation stop criteria by setting the MaximumNumberOfLogs property to 50. Leave the StopTime and MaximumWallClock properties at their default values of 10 seconds and Inf, respectively.

set(configsetObj, 'MaximumNumberOfLogs', 50)

When you simulate modelObj, the simulation stops when 50 logs are created or when the simulation time reaches 10 seconds, whichever comes first.
