Announcing end of support for Python 2.7
|[Note 5]||R2015b and later are only supported in Windows versions of JMAG.|
|[Note 6]||RedHat Enterprise Linux 9 is not supported for linkage with SIMULIA Abaqus.|
|[Note 7]||For Abaqus 2022, FP.CFA 2205 or later version is supported.|
|SMP and MPP|
|CPUs||Intel Xeon E5-26XX (XX:Number) x 2CPUs or later (for example E5-2695v4)
Please contact us if you intend to use any CPU that is not listed above.
|RAM||Physical memory with the fastest speed (clock) for your CPU like “DDR4 2400” is recommended.
Compatible memory depends on a kind of CPU. See the following site of
https://ark.intel.com/ in detail.
The number of physical memory (not quantity but number) greater or equal to the number of memory
slots helps the parallel performance for SMP and MPP.
-Use with PA2 license (JMAG-Designer Ver.20.0 or later)
Ver.21.0 or later: Available up to 2,048 parallel (Note 2)
-Use with MPS license (Note 3)
Please migrate to the PA2 license. Please check the following for the support period etc.
|MPP||For the MPP solver, Infiniband or better network is required.|
Only 64-bit is supported.
Confirm the OS version that supports the MPI library from among the versions described in the JMAG operating environment.
Refer to information from the original provider regarding OS versions that support the MPI library.
|* Please contact us regarding other operating environments.|
●When using GPU licenses (New GPU Solver)
Operation confirmation of GPU Solver has been done on the following NVIDIA GPU having Compute Capability 7.0, 7.5, 8.6, and 3.5.
For looking for other GPU boards which have Compute Capability, please see the following web page NVIDIA provided.
|1 solver license + 1 GPU license (Note 1)|
It is recommended to use the most recent GPU available to take full advantage of the GPU solver.
Please contact your distributor if you are considering using a GPU not listed above.
|(Note 1)||GPU licenses are available on JMAG-Designer Ver.20.0 and later.
Only one GPU board can be used in 20.0 or later.
|(Note 2)||JMAG-Designer Ver.20.0.02/20.1.01 or later.|
●When using PA2 Licenses (Previous GPU Solver)
GPU calculations using PA2 licenses were no later developed in December 2020.
It can also be used by JMAG-Designer Ver.20.0 and later, but there are no future improvements.
Please consider using a GPU license. (Licenses are different. Please let your sales representative know.）
When using the Previous GPU solver with PA2 licenses in JMAG-Designer Ver.20.0 or later, the environment variable “JMAG_GPU_OLD_License” must be set.
For more information, please refer to JMAG-Designer Help.
When using the previous GPU solver, GPUs are only available for Windows 64bit modules.
- IBM Softlayer
- Rescale Platform
*Please contact us for more information.
*While JMAG can be run via the above clouds, actual computers must be prepared for license servers.
Licenses are issued to physical addresses
Please follow the instructions below to use JMAG on a virtual machine.
- Obtain licenses issued for the physical address of a computer that is not a virtual machine to use as the license server.
- Run JMAG on the virtual machine as a client.
The following restrictions for managing licenses will be removed as soon as the JMAG license system supports virtual machines.
*The system requirements change as needed. Please contact us for more information.
