JobSpy by ModelTech

These annotations apply to release 6.2a of ModelSim, which appears to be less stable than previous versions.

It is not necessary to use JobSpy with FlowTracer. FlowTracer/Accelerator is capable of suspending and resuming simulation jobs even without JobSpy.

Set the environment variable JOBSPY_DAEMON (port@host) and start the daemon.
  • JobSpy with an illegal jobid still returns exit status 0, so we need to parse the output string to determine if the operation was successful.
  • JobSpy JOBID suspend is asynchronous, meaning that it returns before the job is actually suspended and the license has been released.
