Summary data can be imported as a single summary file or an ensemble of summary files.
Summary data is located in two files, summary vector names in *.SMSPEC and curve data in *.UNSMRY.
When using the standard file selection dialog, the user is limited to select files in one directory only. If the interesting files are distributed over multiple directories, the dialog has to be opened once for each directory. The recursive file selection dialog is created to circumvent this limitation. This dialog is able to search a directory tree for files matching a specified pattern.
This dialog is used for import of different file types like *.EGRID and *.SMSPEC.
The dialog consists of the following fields:
After pressing the Find button, a file search is performed in the root directory and the directories below matching the path pattern. The files found are presented in a list, where the user can check/uncheck each file individually.
When the OK button is pressed, all checked files are imported.
During summary file import, ResInsight checks whether the summary file is restarted, i.e. has an origin file. If an origin file is found, the Origin Files dialog is displayed.
Depending on what triggered the summary file import, the dialog shows slightly different information. If the summary file import was triggered by a grid file import, the dialog displays information about grid files in addition to the summary origin file(s). If the summary file was imported directly, information about grid files are not relevant and thus not displayed.
The dialog contents are organized in groups:
By default the file names are displayed using relative path based on the common root folder for all files. In order to display the full path, check the Show full paths checkbox. Regardless of the checkbox state, there is always a tooltip showing the full path for every file. It is also possible to copy a full path file name to the clipboard. Right click on the file name and select Copy file name.
If the user selected multiple summary files or grid files, this dialog will be displayed for every file that has an origin summary file. In this case the button OK to All appears. When this button is clicked, the rest of the files will be imported silently using the same options.
h5 File Format
Eclipse is able to reorganize the summary data after a simulations has completed. This will produce an additional curve data file with the extension h5. The curve data in this file is identical to curve data in UNSMRY.
ResInsight will now by default use H5 files to import summary data, as this format has good performance for large datasets. The native Eclipse UNSMRY reader can be used when configured in Eclipse Summary Preferences.
