Log Files in Job Monitor are not shown because they are stored inthe local temp folder

Discussion in 'Cadence' started by Carl Cursujani, Aug 25, 2004.

  1. Hy,

    Does anybody use the distributed processing option with Analog Design
    Environement and use to monitor the jobs the Job Monitor?

    I do so and I have the problem to see the log files of the jobs using

    View->Log Files-> Output

    As the log files are stored in the /tmp folder of the corresponding
    machine where the job is running (which is different to the /tmp folder
    of the machine on which the Job Monitor runs), the log files are not found.

    The only solution that I found:

    Log in by hand on the machine where the job is processed and watching
    the log file on the Shell with less/more.
    This is on long sight very uncomfortable!!

    Does anybody has a solution for this problem.

    I would be very grateful

    Are you writing your results to /tmp?

    You could write them to another NFS mounted location with:
    envSetVal("asimenv.startup" "projectDir" 'string "not/tmp"))

    Or set the path in ADE->Setup->Simulator/Directory/Host->Project

    Should Cadence add the option to do a view() on the log file for
    distributed jobs? I would like to see the focus on a SGE ADE
    integration. Does Cadence have a deal with Platform or what?

  3. Erik,

    We don't have a deal with Platform - it's just that LSF integration is the
    one demanded by _most_ customers, as LSF is a more robust and powerful
    solution. Just because you don't happen to use it does not mean that other
    customers are not using it by the shed load.

    That said, SGE is pretty good, and has the benefit of being free (excluding the
    Enterprise edition).

    I would too like to see the ADE integration finished - the architecture part has
    been done, just needs the ADE support being done.

    We use the LSF integration all day long but would like the opportunity
    to switch to SGE. I don't want a big involved integration by Cadence.
    I just want to be able to give a run command to be prefixed to the
    job. In that way I could use SGE or LSF and be able to use all the
    available options and not just the options in the form. We don't use
    the job monitor and instead just use xlsbatch, qmon, bjobs, ...

  5. Erik,

    It always sounds easy, but there's a whole lot more to it than that - it's a
    matter of managing the simulation directories, dependencies and so on (yes, I
    know you've had some issues with that).

    That said, most of that is common for all distributed solutions. So I agree, it
    shouldn't be that hard to add the SGE integration into ADE, given the fact that
    the lower level implementation has been done.

    Unfortunately it hasn't been done yet...
