Retrace a list of files and directories. Use option -set to retrace sets of nodes.

vsr: Usage Message
    Retrace a list of files and directories.
    With the option '-set' you can retrace sets of nodes.

    % vsr -help
    % vsr -set  <setName>
    % vsr [options] <id_or_file_or_directory> ...

    OPTIONS: All options can be abbreviated to one letter,
             except -safe, -fast, -aggressive, and -select.

     -help          This message.
     -v             Increase verbosity.
     -all           Retrace the entire design (abbreviation -a).
     -force         Force retracing of failed nodes too.
                    Abbreviation: -f
     -hier          If target is a set with subsets, retrace all subsets.
     -kick          Kick a file: update all files that depend on it.
     -priority sp[.xp]
                    Specify the scheduling priority (sp) and optionally
                    also the execution priority (xp).
                    Both sp and xp can be one of:
                    LOW, NORMAL, HIGH, TOP or an integer in [1-15].
                    (Explanation: TOP=15  HIGH=8 NORMAL=4 LOW=1)
     -resources <r> Additional resources to be used for the jobs to be
                    retraced.  Abbreviation: -r
     -select <rule> Retrace nodes that match the given selection rule.
     -set <setName> Retrace all nodes in given set.
     -recompute     If used with -set, forces recomputation of named set.
     -timeout <timeSpec>
                    Wait for events for specified time, then exit if
                    no event arrives.
     -nowait        Exit immediately after issuing retracing request.
                    This is the same as "-timeout 0"

     -safe              All dependencies are computed again (default).
     -fast              Retrace without computing the dependencies again.
     -aggressive        Like safe, but retrace in parallel across barriers.
     -crossbarriers     Schedule jobs across barriers
                        Abbreviation: -cb
     -skipcheck         Do not check the upcone of the target.
     -checkall          Check all files in the upcone of the target.
     -nocheck           Do not check files in directories to retrace.
                        Implies -skipcheck.
     -unblock           Check blocking files before doing retrace.
     -retry <n>         Repeat retracing <n> times. The default is 1.
     -converge          Retry until the flow is complete or until the
                        failed/invalid job count is unchanged after 3 retrace
                        loops. If a retry number is specified, converge will
                        limit the number of retrace loops to that number.
     -statusreps <n>    Override the default of 3 for the maximum number of
                        repeated failed/invalid job counts for the converge

You can request a run for a given target file with:
% vsr fileName_or_VovId
You can run all jobs in a directory with:
% vsr directoryName
You can target a run to be a group of nodes that make up an entire set with:
% vsr -set setName
As a special case, you can run everything in the whole design. Use the system defined private set System:nodes with:
% vsr -all
Set the Priority with the option -p:
% vsr -p high directoryName
If you change a file and would like to retrace starting with that changed file, running jobs that are affected by the change, use:
% vsr -kick name_or_VovId_of_changed_file
