    simulation dump sliding window or start time Reply

    Hi all,

    I have a test case runs for long time and the error occurs at the end of the run. The dump is really big and it's very slow to open up the waveform. Does anyone knows the options how to start the dump at a certain time, or how to limit the dump size so that it acts like a sliding window only dump the lastest info?

    Thanks,

    VY

    Try the "-incfiles" and "-incsize" options on the "database" command
    when opening the SHM database before then probing the signals you're
    watching.
    This will split the database file into multiple files, and will set a
    maximum size for each chunk.
