The W1712EP/ET PathWave System Design (SystemVue) Distributed Computing 8-pack accelerates and manages multiple parameterized sweep simulations across high-performance distributed computing environments. It provides a comprehensive set of job creation, allocation and submission capabilities, and returns results to SystemVue as a single dataset. The W1712 works with the IBM Platform LSF and Univa Grid Engine distributed computing software to make sure jobs are automatically allocated to the right resources for maximum application performance and efficiency. Communications system architects, verification engineers, and baseband designers use the W1712 to accelerate architecture studies and verification suites while reducing costs and accelerating time-to-results.
With the stackable distributed computing 8-pack license policy, simulation speed can be accelerated by the size of the compute farm of your IT infrastructure – from 8x, 16x, 24x, 32x to a theoretical maximum number of processors for parallel simulation efficiency. Theoretically, the parallel simulation speed is proportional to the number of processors used at the same time. However, in practice, simulation speed depends on the simulation efficiency which is tightly related to various environmental factors such as, amount of network traffic and bandwidth, performance of load sharing utility, sequencing algorithm of job submission, and allocation.
