Hello. I am writing with regards to OceanXL. I, too, am having trouble using OceanXL to do what I have been able to do previously with Ocean. My two issues are below:
1. I would like to have OceanXL output only certain outputs (such as those I have specified in ADE or ADEXL, like gain, bandwidth, etc) in tabular format using something like fprintf or the like. It doesn't seem to work the same way I have tried in the regular OCEAN since I am running distributed sims.
2. I would also like to run OCEANXL in distributed mode AND run it in the background without it holding down my cadence session. In the past, I have run OCEAN using the icsub command, but this precludes me running distributed sims. I would like to run OCEANXL using the icsub command AND have it use my distributed simulation settings specified in my OCEANXL script.
Of course, I can run distributed sims in ADEXL which works. But when I run enough sims in parallel, my cadence session gets tied down and I can't do anything else. This is undesirable. My productivity goes down 10x!
The above issues are not spelled out at all in the OCEANXL reference provided to designers. Do you have suggestions for a better reference and/or how to fix the problems?
I have a question on running parallel jobs through ocean script.In my script I have
hostMode( 'distributed )simList = append1( simList run( ?jobName RunName ?queue "normal" ?lsfResourceStr "rusage[mem=1000]" ?mail nil) )
However some waiting jobs are alwasy submitted to queue 'desktop' instead of 'normal'.
JOBID USER STAT QUEUE FROM_HOST EXEC_HOST JOB_NAME SUBMIT_TIME781242 stsui RUN normal lx-deskh333 sc2b0671 *1_0.85005 Apr 29 21:52781245 stsui RUN normal lx-deskh333 sc2b0671 *1_0.85005 Apr 29 21:52781241 stsui RUN normal lx-deskh333 cabr0188 *1_0.95005 Apr 29 21:52513604 stsui PEND desktop lx-deskh333 wait004 Apr 27 17:35781246 stsui PEND desktop lx-deskh333 wait005 Apr 29 21:52
Do you know which ocean command to correct the queue name problem?
