Hello all,

I have a large RC network that I am simulating in HSPICE (on Linux). The voltage sources are all DC and the current sources are random PWL signals. I am trying to figure out the number of system solves that HSPICE is performing to finish the simulation. In the output generated on the terminal, there are two entires: "tot. iter" and "conv. iter". I am guessing these are the entries that I should be looking at. Does anybody know the difference between these two numbers? which one should I be reporting?

Thank you

Mohammad
