So I'm running cadence 6.1.3 and I'm trying to do an APS simulation. I found that if I do a saveOption('save "all"), it wouldn't save all. In fact it would randomly throw away nodes that should have been saved (i.e. nodes with two end points connected to transistors).
So, I switched to save selected.
I wrote a small script to generate the save script to save a bunch of nodes and pasted the result into my ocean script. This ended up being ~ 100+ signals in a save statement.
Now, when I try launching the simulation it takes MUCH longer to start as it's spending a long time parsing the save statements.
Is this what other people are seing? Does the save command really only work well with just a few nodes?
