The PRINTSIMSTATUS control flag provides options to control if and how the simulation summary is printed to screen.

Available options

OptionDescriptionSupported since
defaultThe default daily summary is printed to screen (including observed and simulated streamflow if channel routing is enabled and columns of daily basin-average precipitation, evapotranspiration, and runoff if the water balance is enabled), where the leading day is in the "YEAR JDAY" format.r1396
on
1
monthlyA monthly summary is printed to screen (including monthly basin-average precipitation, evapotranspiration, and runoff if the water balance is enabled), where the leading day is the last day of that month in the "YEAR JDAY" format. Streamflow is not included in the summary, even if channel routing is enabled.
date_dailyA daily summary is printed to screen (including observed and simulated streamflow if channel routing is enabled and columns of daily basin-average precipitation, evapotranspiration, and runoff if the water balance is enabled), where the leading day is in the "YEAR/MONTH/DAY" format.
date_monthlyA monthly summary is printed to screen (including monthly basin-average precipitation, evapotranspiration, and runoff if the water balance is enabled), where the leading day is the last day of that month in the "YEAR/MONTH/DAY" format. Streamflow is not included in the summary, even if channel routing is enabled.
offDisables screen output during the simulation. Nothing is printed to screen after the "STARTING MESH" message, until the "Reached end of forcing data." or "Reached simulation end date." message.

Examples

Behaviour without this option (PRINTSIMSTATUS on)

Without activating the PRINTSIMSTATUS control flag or by activating PRINTSIMSTATUS with option "on" (or 1), the default daily summary is printed to screen as if PRINTSIMSTATUS was configured with option "default". A daily summary is printed to screen that includes observed and simulated streamflow at streamflow gauge locations if channel routing is enabled, and columns of daily basin-average precipitation, evapotranspiration, and runoff if the water balance is enabled. The leading day at the beginning of the line is in the in the "YEAR JDAY" format.

PRINTSIMSTATUS off

Activating PRINTSIMSTATUS with option "off" (or 0) will disable all summary output to the screen during the simulation. Initialization and end-of-run information (e.g., the "final tally" totals) will still print to screen, as well as any diagnostic information if DIAGNOSEMODE is enabled.

 Reached simulation end date.

PRINTSIMSTATUS monthly

Activating PRINTSIMSTATUS with option "monthly" will print a monthly summary to screen at the end of the last time-step of the month. The leading day at the beginning of the line is the last day of that month in the "YEAR JDAY" format. The summary includes monthly basin-average precipitation, evapotranspiration, and runoff if the water balance is enabled.  The summary does not include streamflow, even if channel routing is enabled.

PRINTSIMSTATUS date_daily

Activating PRINTSIMSTATUS with option "date_daily" prints a summary equivalent to the daily summary printed with option "default", except the leading day at the beginning of the line is in the "YEAR/MONTH/DAY" format.
