Resuming a batch

It is possible to resume a batch process that has finished or been stopped, provided the session has not been edited in the Session Processor. To resume a batch, use the “Resume Session” button to load the session file (.ssn or .ssn2).

The session file is saved after each image is processed, so it is available to resume processing even if the batch is interrupted unexpectedly (for example, a power outage), though it is possible for the “measurements.csv” file to contain an incomplete or duplicated measurement line if processing stopped as the measurements were being written but before the session file was saved.

The recipe and calibration will have been saved in the session and will be re-loaded automatically, so it is not necessary to have the original recipe file available. Before after loading the batch for resumption but before the actual processing, it is available to add new images to the list to be processed. New processed images and measurements will be placed alongside those from the original batch.

Pausing and stopping a batch

While a batch is running, it is available to pause or stop before the batch finishes. These function similarly; the only difference between Pause and Stop is that Pause will automatically load the batch for resuming. While the batch is paused, it is available to shut down MIPAR or even the workstation; to then resume, the batch will need to be loaded into the Batch Processor manually. Any images that did not get processed before will automatically be added to the file list.
