Creo Simulate 2.0 M070 keeps throwing memory issues


Creo Simulate 2.0 M070 keeps throwing memory issues

My analysis fails due to memory issues I suppose, but I don't know how I can fix it. I have the 20 processors, and dynamic RAM upto 48 GB RAM (virtual machine)

Memory Allocation for Block Solver is 8000 MB

Max_Sim_Solver_allocation: 4096 in Creo


I don't know how to change SolRAM as they mention in many other forums. Can anyone suggest a workaround? I would really appreciate that.


Here's the message from Solver Status:


>> Pass 3 <<

The design study terminated abnormally.

An error has occurred while requesting an additional

4.45009 gigabytes of memory from the operating system.

To correct this problem, you may need to increase the amount

of swap space on your system. You may also need to increase

the memory usage limits that are set for your system.

For large problems you can also try decreasing the

solram allocation setting.

At least 17.858 gigabytes of memory are needed to run this design study.
