Did you know - Cadence Virtuoso integrates with ClearCase? And even better... the latest fix pack has more features to offer…

With IBM® Rational® ClearCase® - Cadence Integration, IBM brings its enterprise configuration and change management solution to analog, radio frequency, or mixed signal designers using Cadence Design Framework. This allows you to take advantage of core capabilities of IBM Rational ClearCase, without leaving your familiar design environment. This integration allows custom chip designers to complete ClearCase actions while in the Cadence Design Framework II toolset. This makes parallel development, co-development, and co-management of hardware and software domains and artifacts possible. Having common SCM tools for hardware and software development results in more flexibility in system integration and offers several other advantages. The following article describes those advantages and some of the important features of the ClearCase-Cadence integration – Integrate IBM Rational ClearCase with Cadence Design Framework II
Some of the benefits offered by this integration are as follows:
Starting with ClearCase 220.127.116.11 and ClearCase 18.104.22.168, the Cadence Design Framework integration is included with ClearCase as a component that can be installed as part of the ClearCase install with IBM Installation Manager. For information on installing and upgrading Cadence Virtuoso Integration, refer to Infocenter here. And for detailed system requirements refer here.
The latest fix-pack release includes the following new features:

Under IBM Rational Quality manager (RQM) v3.x release onwards, during the course of creating a new defect work item, you are allowed to select the record type. Below are 2 such scenarios where the record types differ between older (2.x) and newer versions (3.x onwards) of RQM.
The functionality to select record types ( RQM/CQ integration) was added via RFE 25717 in version 4.0.1; this is the current default behavior (i.e. functioning as intended).

The IBM Whole-system Analysis of Idle Time (“WAIT”) tool is a web-based tool for diagnosing performance and scalability bottlenecks, especially in deployed enterprise environments, but useful throughout the software life cycle from development to test to deployed customer environments and IBM customer support.
Collecting WAIT Data:
For example, the Figure below illustrates a simple use of the WAIT data collector for AIX, Linux, Solaris, and HP-UX. In this
In this example, javacores are collected every 15 seconds. However, the current default is every 30 seconds. When the system is generally performing acceptably, we recommend collecting WAIT data infrequently – once every 20 minutes to provide a baseline of performance with minimal impact and data storage requirements. When problems occur, we recommend increasing the collection rate to every 30 seconds and collecting data for 5-10 minutes at this increased rate.
Many other options are available than just specifying the PID of the JVM. For example, the data collector supports collecting data from all JVMs in the system or collecting N samples and then stopping. Invoking the data collector (wai
You must either specify one or more valid PIDs, or use the option: --processName NAME
If unspecified this value is computed based on the sleep interval.
As the figure indicates, these options provide the ability to monitor all JVMs or only a subset of interest, and also provide control over naming and location of files and the interval at which javacores are collected and for how long.
Once the data has been collected, it is ready to be uploaded to the WAIT server and a description of that follows shortly.
The WAIT data collector essentially automates these manual steps under the cores. We also note that “kill -3” on the JVM process ID does not kill it, but only causes it to dump a javacore. Under the covers the WAIT data collector also collects data from ps and vmstat, as well as lparstat if available. It is not required that these utilities be available. The quality of the WAIT report is improved if they are available, but the report provides a great deal of useful information even without them.
Upload data to WAIT Server
Using the “Select a File” button in green, you may select the zip file created using the data collector process described in the previous section. By default, this file will be named waitData.tar.gz. Select this file using the standard Windows or MacOS or other browser explorer mechanism. The optional description field can be used to detail the content of the report and to enter searchable phrases. Your email address is filled in by default and provides a useful key to finding reports from history. With this information (file, optional description, email address – completed by WAIT based on your login), you are ready to click the green “Submit for Analysis” button.
After doing so, the WAIT report will pop up in your browser in a few seconds (although times can vary depending on your connection speed and the number / size of the javacores and other data being uploaded).
