I recommend filing a Service Request via sourcelink.cadence.com and sending in your spectre.out and CDS.log files. Is Spectre failing? Or is the error occuring when you are reading in/plotting the data? Are you running 32 bit or 64 bit spectre?
If the simulation data is from Spectre and the waveform tool used is WaveScan, and simulation results directory is greated than 2G in size, then please follow solution# 11264780http://sourcelink.cadence.com/docs/db/kdb/2006/Aug/11264780.html tosplit your PSF directory in 2 Gigs chunks when you run big simulations next time.

I see you've logged SR 42747808 for this - probably best to handle it there as I see there is some complexity to your issue.
Hi Andy, How did you solve your problem? I met the same problem as you did when I was doing Monte Carlo analysis of my layout. Some files in my PSF directory are really large, more than 20G in size. Hope you can do me a favor, I really appreciate it.
Since the Sourcelink has been replaced by Cadence online support, I can't find the solution you proposed to this problem. Is there another URL links to that solution? If there is, could you send it to me? I really appreciate it.

Not sure this solution will really help you - but the new URL is this.
Which version of the IC tools are you using? (Help->About in the CIW will tell you the subversion). Or type getVersion(t) in the CIW and report what it says.

In addition to the comments I posted in the other thread (please don't cross-post), you may be best advised to save less. If you're generating 40-50Gbytes of data, you must be saving lots of signals and probably lots of points too. The chances are you probably don't need all of that data...
