Hello! I am having problems plotting the histograms of my monte carlo
runs. Sometimes (I suspect due to license timeouts) the simulation of
some points in the run "kind of" fails (i.e., they are not flagged as
failed, but all their associated evaluated/measured quantities are
zero!). These points lead to wrong histograms, since the zero values are
taken into account for the plotting.
If, however, after the whole
monte carlo run is over I use the option "[right-click] Troubleshoot
point" on these failed points, they all run fine. The problem is that the
troubleshot results for these points are not integrated with the rest of
the monte carlo run, so I still get ill histograms. So my question is,
how can I tell adexl to merge the troubleshot points' results with the
rest of the original results, so as to replace the old zero-valued
entries?Thanks in advance for any help/ideas/comments.Cheers,Jorge.P.S.
I naively attempted to fool adexl by manually copying the troubleshot
results into the old point's data directory, but it didn't work; I guess
I'm still lacking a way to make adexl reload the data from the disk...
how could I force this? (yes, I tried closing everything and reopening,
but it doesn't seem to read the overwritten data!).
I don't think this is possible currently (at least not without a lot of hacking). I suggest you contact customer support - it seems a reasonable request to be able to do this.
CCR 1183106 has been filed for this. Everyone who also needs this feature should ask Cadence support to file a duplicate of this CCR on his behalf. The more people ask for this feature, the more likely it is to be implemented soon.
Thanks for your replies, Andrew & Frank. Unfortunately, I believe Europractice academic members don't have the possibility to contact Cadence customer support... do you know of any other means to channel such support requests for indirect Cadence users like us? Cheers,Jorge.
Contact Europractice (via http://www.europractice.stfc.ac.uk/contact_us.html I think) and then they will contact us on your behalf. We work closely with the folks at Rutherford Appleton Labs who run the Europractice software service.
Oh, that's great news Andrew; I will then contact them w.r.t to this problem.Thanks again,
