If I understand your question correctly, your flow multipliers are now stochastic and are sampled from a distribution in SyncroSim. You would like to know the sampled rate values and pull them into your rsyncrosim external program. As I understand it, these values vary across years so your sampling frequency should be “Iteration and Timestep”.
stsimsf_OutputFlow will get you the total flow “Amount” broken down by source state class, strata, etc… Using this datasheet, you would then need to back calculate the rate taking into account total area. For example if a particular row has a value of x that represents a flow amount for that combination of strata, your rate would be x divided by the total area on the landscape associated with that combination of strata.
Note that you could also get the rate associated with each individual cell on your landscape by getting the raster you need from stsimsf_OutputSpatialFlowGroup. These values are already rates specified as flow amount per unit area.
One final note: if you prefer to continue using State Attributes to specify your rates, this datasheet also allows for specifying distributions rather than single values.
Hope that helps!
