I am trying to do parametric analysis on inverter using the ocean script where in i will be collecting my data points in a .cvs file.
But when ever i try the ocean script, after few iterations it always stops and gives me this error of insufficent memory.
I have pasted the error that i get.
Fatal error found by spectre. FATAL: Failed to created rechecking thread! FATAL: Failed to start license heart beat! FATAL: Failed to created rechecking thread! FATAL: Failed to start license heart beat! FATAL: Failed to created rechecking thread! FATAL: Failed to start license heart beat!Internal error found in spectre. Please run `getSpectreFiles' or send the netlist, the spectre log file, the behavioral model files, and any other information that can help identify the problem to firstname.lastname@example.org. FATAL (CMI-2010): Assertion failed in file `analyses.c' at line 1109.Mem Used: 4073.6 MB (Memory Exhausted)Fatal error found by spectre. FATAL (CMI-2002): Insufficient memory available, To reduce memory for rf analyses, please refer "spectre -h rfmemory"
How to i increase the memory so that i can run the iterations to collect more data points.
Please help me with this problem.
You didn't mention what version of spectre and IC software that you are using.
Try using 64 bit instead of 32 bit mode.
Add this to the OCEAN script:envOption( 'userCmdLineOption "-64" )

In reply to Tawna:
the spectre that i am using is MMSIN72 and ic 6.1.4
and I am using 64 bit machine.
I have put in the command mentioned by you n it worked. Thanks a lot.
Could you please explain me what that command meant and why was i not able to do it before and why i am able to do it now.
Thanks a lot for the help.
In reply to Mohana:
The command that I provided "turns on" 64 bit spectre. By default, spectre simulates in 32 bit mode.
For more information, you may want to look at the following Solution on Cadence OnLine Support
I am unable to open the link that was sent by you.
Could you please attach that file and email me.

Thank you very much for your
The solution doesn't tell you much more than the fact that you can use $CDS_AUTO_64BIT to enable 64 bit mode for various applications, and use -64 as a command line option. Searching for CDS_AUTO_64BIT in the documentation would tell you more.
By running in 64 bit mode, it means that pointers are then 64 bit long, which allows greater memory access than with a 32 bit application.
However, you might also want to look into what you're doing - why is the simulation taking so much memory. Is it an RF simulation? If so, have you set it up properly? Perhaps giving some info as to what analyses you're running in spectre (a good way to show this would be to post the bottom parts of your input.scs which show the analysis statements). Also, show the circuit inventory that you get in the log file, so we can see the size of the circuit.
