Looking for some help on what the cause is when a Cadence session crashes when using Virtuoso : LE/XL Version 5.10.41_USR6.127.29.
There are 2 types of crashes.
First is while editing in the layout the whole session is killed and closed out. Here you will only see in a terminal window that a "segmentation fault" has occurred but a panic file does get created.
Second is while editing the session freezes and no panic file gets created.
We have hourly backups on the servers but with these episodes becoming more frequent we need to get to the cause of the crashes.
The servers at this point are not the problem and looking to see if the Cadence tool is triggered by something to cause the crash.
Thankyou in advance for any help here.
any word on this?

I was told to have a CADENCE rep comeout and see if the tool is docked properly. Other than that we found that someone that may jump on the same server and running a simulation that take alot of disc space may be part of it but this is not defined.

And the version you're using is pretty old - if you're stuck on IC5141, I'd suggest using a more recent version (like the latest hotfix of IC5141) to see if that helps.
