    use of run(?sgeHardResources "Virtuoso_Multi_mode_Simulation=x") option Reply

     Hi all

     

    I am trying to use SGE for distributed simulation. When I run a simulation from ADE it all works well as expected. When I use an ocean script with the following additions for use with SGE:

     

    hostMode('distributed')

     ...

    run(?jobName "myJob" ?queue "myQueue" ?block 't ?sgehardresource "Virtuoso_Multi_mode_Simulation=2"

    openResults('myJob)

    ...

     

    The problemI ran into is that the simulations never start even though SGE starts the job and ends it successfully. I noticed that removing the sgehardresource option solves the problem and the simulation works perfectly. Unfortunatly I need this option in our setup!

    The logfiles show no difference exept that the log messages of the analyses are missing (thats how I now the simulation never ran). In addition I found out that using the option produces a difference in the input.scs file. The following lines are missing:

    dcOp dc write="spectre.dc" maxiters=150 maxsteps=10000 annotate=status
    dcOpInfo info what=oppoint where=rawfile
    stb stb start=1e0 stop=1e9 dec=100 probe=IPRB0 annotate=status

    These are exactly the analyses I am trying to run. Am I using the sgehardresource option in the run() command wrong or is this a genuine bug?

    Does anyone have experiance with this option?

    Cheers, Samuel

     Hi All

    I have resolved the issue: The command sgeHardResource in the oceanReference is spelled wrong. It should be sgeHardResourceSrt

     

    run(?jobName "myJob" ?queue "myQueue" ?block 't ?sgeHardResourceStr "Virtuoso_Multi_mode_Simulation=2"

     

    Cheers, Samuel
