I am running a spectre simulation with my AWD window open. I also have a terminal shell open and running 'top' so I can see what my PC running Linux is doing. All is well with spectre clipping along at about 150% of the CPU (about 75% on each core) until I perform an Windows>Update Results in AWD or even Results>Plot Outputs>Transientsfrom the ADE window. Then spectre drops to 3-6% on the top display and stays running at that level. The spectre.out log file continues toshow time updates, but they now occur very slowly.
Anyone have any ideas about what might be going on?
Here's the top portion of my spectre.out log file: cpp: unrecognized option `-$' Command line: /home/cadence/mmsim60/tools.lnx86/spectre/bin/32bit/spectre -env \ artist5.1.0 +escchars +log ../psf/spectre.out +inter=mpsc \ +mpssession=spectre0_9956_2 -format sst2 -raw ../psf \ -I/home/cad/kits/FOUNDRYXX/HOTCODE/amslibs/cds445/cdslibs/ca18/models/v3.6/spectre\ -I/home/cad/kits/FOUNDRYXX/A18_d14/spectre/scgp \ -I/home/cad/kits/FOUNDRYXX/A18_d14/spectre/scgp_analog \ -I/home/cad/kits/FOUNDRYXX/A18LP_d01/spectre/scm +lqtimeout 900 \ -maxw 5 -maxn 5 -csfe input.scs spectre pid = 21890
Sounds odd. You should contact customer support so that this can be worked through - there's not enough information in what you say to diagnose this properly.Regards,Andrew.
