I have some servers at the LM_LICENSE_FILE and MGLS_LICENSE_FILE, also for continue working while I'm traveling I have a license.dat file at LM_LICENSE_FILE.
When I'm at the office everything works perfect and fast, but when I'm not connected to my company network modelsim is very very slow.
It takes from 1 to 5 minutes to open, also when I launch a simulation it compiles ok but when it get to:
# [exec] elab
it takes up to 5 minuts to show:
# vsim -t ps -L work -L work_lib -L fifo_171 -L fifoInput -L OutputFifo -L TFCInputFifo -L altera -L lpm -L sgate -L altera_mf -L altera_lnsim -L twentynm -L twentynm_hssi -L twentynm_hip Compactor_tb
and start simulating.
I suspect that this has something to do with modelsim trying to reach the license servers.
What would be the proper configuration to avoid these big delays?
My current solution is delete the LM_LICENSE_FILE & MGLS_LICENSE_FILE environment variables and to have 2 different scripts to run, on if I'm at my office connected to the company network and I can reach the license servers and one for if I'm not connected to company network that sets LM_LICENSE_FILE to my local license.dat
is not the best solution but it dos the trick
