Skillbridge creates several log files while running. By default they are stored in the current working directory where the cadence tool was started. You can override that by setting the environmental variable SKILLBRIDGE_LOG_DIRECTORY to a valid folder name before starting the cadence tool.


Do not include the trailing slash when setting the variable!

Alternatively you can also set the variable inside the CIW before loading the server script

setShellEnvVar("SKILLBRIDGE_LOG_DIRECTORY" "some/valid/path/here")

The following log files are created:

  1. skillbridge_server.log for the python server (use pyStartServer ?logLevel LEVEL to control the log level)

  2. skillbridge_skill.log for the skill process.

  3. skillbridge_script.log for the skill process when using pyRunScript
