I am running a long list of PSL properties through IFV 5.8-s1. A few among them are showing the status as 'Aborted'. When I check the aborted properties with,"assertion -show -verbose -list", it shows,"Exception : ***unknown***". I have tried to modify the properties to the simplest form but still they abort. The user manual says that an 'abort' can happen if there is something wrong with the tool or there is any memory or disk space issue. I have enough disk space and memory to run the properties. How can I gather more information before calling Cadence support?
A couple of other things to consider...Go through the HAL checks and clean up where necessary.Use the report -fanin tool to find common FFs and inputs in the COI of the properties that are aborting. This may help point you to the logic that is causing the problem.Look for logic loops in your design. These may be easier to find if you can simulate your design.I'm sorry that I can't offer much more help. Good luck.
In addition, please download the latest version of IFV. The current version is IFV 5.8-s3 (released recently) and just make sure the issue is not resolved in the latest release.
You might also want to check your setup/environment.There is this utility called ifv_checkTry running it.
