Not enough ANSYS HPC licenses The Ansys HPC (related to core usage in analyzes) campus license includes a common HPC pool. Therefore, users on the campus using Ansys CFD, Mechanical and Electronics software use the same common HPC repository. As there may be more Ansys CFD and Mechanical users in the campus license, they may have used cores from the common HPC repository. Thus, users using Ansys Electronics software may have fewer cores left, as the number of cores in the common HPC pool will vary according to the use of other users. Therefore, the number of HPC core usage, which varies in the number of users using HPC cores, may be due to this reason.
