I am running a pimpleFoam simulation on a supercomputer. I have to submit it as a job which has an allocated time. The simulation I was running ran out of this allocated time. So then I restarted it with startFrom latestTime; and writeInterval 0.01; in the controlDict, it started printing out many intermediate time results which did not happen during the first run. Following is my controlDict file which I did not change between the two runs:

/--------------------------------- C++ -----------------------------------\ | ========= | | | \ / F ield | OpenFOAM: The Open Source CFD Toolbox | | \ / O peration | Version: v2006

//application icoFoam; application pimpleFoam;

startFrom latestTime; //startFrom startTime;

Examples of what I mean are the two following pictures:

I am using OpenFOAM v10.
