System Configuration Analysis for Abaqus 6.13

The programs available for download from this page have been designed to aid in the evaluation of an existing computer configuration relative to the system requirements for Abaqus. If you already have Abaqus loaded on the computer of interest, you can get the same information using the command:

abaqus info=system


To determine whether your current configuration will satisfy the Abaqus system requirements, select the appropriate platform from the table below. Click on the platform name and download the file indicated from the window that appears. The files can be placed in any directory to which you have full access.






On Linux platforms: Download the file sysinfo.tar.gz, expand it and untar it. Change directories to the sysinfo directory, then execute the file sysinfo.csh, as follows:

 gunzip sysinfo.tar.gz
tar -xvf sysinfo.tar
cd sysinfo

On Windows platforms: Download the file and expand it using WinZip by double-clicking the file icon in the Explorer dialog. (If you do not have a version of WinZip one can be downloaded from the WinZip homepage.) In a command window, set your current directory to the sysinfo directory and run the sysinfo.bat file, as follows:

 cd sysinfo

Sysinfo output: The sysinfo programs use various system commands to extract information from your computer. Only the information available to users with no special access privilege is extracted; commands that require special (root) privilege to extract information are not included. The programs were developed for English-based operating systems. If you installed your operating system in a language other than English, some of the information may not be retrievable.

Running the program will produce a report similar to the one shown below. Compare this report to the system requirements for Abaqus 6.13 to determine whether modifications to your computer might be needed.
