Simunto Via runs on Windows 7 (SP 1) or newer, including Windows 8 and Windows 10.
Via runs on OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), macOS 10.12 (Sierra) or later.
Via should run on most modern x64 Linux distributions. It can be run on other distributions as well if OpenJDK / Java 11 is provided.
To run Via, make sure you have enough RAM. Small scenarios can usually be visualized with less than 1 GB of RAM. Car-only scenarios with around 0.5 million agents can be run with around 3 GB of RAM, while multi-modal scenarios with around 1 million agents require about 6 GB of RAM.
Java applications need to have a limit set, how much memory they can use (using the
-Xmx argument). To change this limit (e.g. to load bigger scenarios), proceed as follows:
- On Windows: open the file via64.ini in a text editor and change the corresponding values.
- On macOS: right-click on the Via application, and choose
Show Package Contents. A new window should open. Open the file
Contents/Info.plistby double-clicking on it. Change the
VMOptionsin the Java-section to reflect other memory settings.
- On Linux: open the via shell script in your favorite text editor. Search for the line that starts with
JOPTS=, and change the settings to your requirements.
