Here's a better explanation of computational steering:


It is also quite common to examine output logs of long running jobs -
to check that the solution is not diverging.
Checkpointing for long running jobs is important too - you might want
to stop the job, and re-run from a given point with different
parameters, or indeed guard against hardware failure - if your job
runs for N days you might be unhappy if the system crashed when it was
five minutes from the end!
