    [moved] Saving a transient signal just at one time point in Cadence

    Hi,
    I want to do a transient simulation with Cadence. It is too time-consuming and finally shows the error of "insufficient virtual memory". I saved only the voltages of 14 nodes of the circuit. But, I do not need the values of these signals from start-time to stop-time. I only need to measure the values at a time point. Is there any approach to save the values of the transient signals just at a time point (not at the whole time interval)?
    I would appreciate if anyone can help me.

    Make sure your explicit "keep" is not being overridden
    later by some default, or that "keep all currents" is
    there and unaffected by your node voltage keep
    command.

    You can in many simulators start the saving of data
    at a later point than simulation start time. Not "just
    at", but close enough if you (say) run out to 10mS
    and start saving data at 9.999mS.

    In the transient simulation options there is a parameter called outputstart. The time you give to this parameter is the time from when the output would be saved.
