MonolixSuite validation

The validation of MonolixSuite can be done via an executable in MonolixSuite. The validation is in two steps.

Validation of the graphical interface

For that part, you need to follow the steps described here. It is a simple procedure to check that the installation is ok, the interface is ok and that the link between the interface and the calculation engine.

Validation of the Monolix

The validation can be done via an executable in MonolixSuite.

  1. Go to the installation folder of MonolixSuite (by default “C:/ProgramData/Lixoft/MonolixSuite2019R1” for Windows OS)
  2. Launch the following command line
    [Windows OS] .\lib\validationSuite.exe --noGui -i .\resources\validationSuite\monolix
    [LinuxOS] ./lib/validationSuite --noGui -i ./resources/validationSuite/monolix
    • It runs 20 projects that cover all the features of Monolix. The validation matrix can be found here.
    • The results are in the user directory userDirectory\lixoft\monolix\monolix2019R1\tmp for the user that launched the validation suite. You can define the repository where to set the report using the “-o” command.
    • A summary called validation_suite_summary.txt is proposed and you should have only OKs as the one enclosed that I just run.
    • It takes around 40 minute on a classical laptop (a 4-core classical machine).

Validation of PKanalix

The validation can be done via an executable in MonolixSuite. It is the same as for Monolix.

  1. Go to the installation folder of MonolixSuite (by default “C:/ProgramData/Lixoft/MonolixSuite2019R1” for Windows OS)
  2. Launch the following command line
    [Windows OS] .\lib\validationSuite.exe --noGui -s pkanalix -i .\resources\validationSuite\pkanalix
    [LinuxOS] ./lib/validationSuite --noGui -s pkanalix -i ./resources/validationSuite/pkanalix
    • It runs 12 projects that cover all the features of PKanalix.
    • The results are in the user directory userDirectory\lixoft\pkanalix\pkanalix2019R1\tmp for the user that launched the validation suite. You can define the repository where to set the report using the “-o” command.
    • A summary called validation_suite_summary.txt is proposed and you should have only OKs as the one enclosed that I just run.
    • It takes couple of minutes on a classical laptop (a 4-core classical machine).

Validation of the other applications

Notice that the other applications do not need any additional validation as all of them share the same calculation engine, graphical user technology, parsing, data set management, …

Older version

The validation of the calculation engine is the same for older version of MonolixSuite (starting from the 2018R1 version).
For the 2018R1 and 2018R2 version, go to the associated installation folder and launch the following command line

[Windows OS] .\lib\validationSuite.exe --noGui -i .\resources\validationSuite\
[LinuxOS] ./lib/validationSuite --noGui -i ./resources/validationSuite
