Slow simulation with Accelerated Waveform Viewer


We have recently discovered that the 2013 editions of the McAfee® security products implement a real-time scanning method that significantly impedes Aldec simulations utilizing the Accelerated waveform/ASDB database. Our experiments show that the real time scanner implemented in the McAfee Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware module version 16.1 "scans" every single transaction that the simulation engine writes to the ASDB database, and every transaction that the accelerated waveform viewer reads from the database. The problem will show up in all versions of the Riviera-PRO simulator and in the versions of the Active-HDL simulator that have the accelerated waveform enabled in the license.
