System-Console JRE Error (18.0+). Happens on CLI but not on GUI.

Hello, 

 

2 bugs to report:

 

1) The same exact command ran in the system-console GUI works fine. However, adding the "--cli" flag generates the following error. Please help. 

The TCL script has a single line:

puts "Wait for clients"
vwait forever

 

Error generated in CLI when pressing the Enter key (in GUI everything works fine):

>> system-console.exe --debug --rc_script=intel_test2.txt --cli
[...]
% Accept sock2092 from 127.0.0.1 port 57221
Wait for clients

2) Attempt to pass a command through a catch/eval statement results in different status 

I have included the test files I used. To reproduce, you will need 2 terminals. 

Terminal 1:

 

C:\intelFPGA_pro\quartus_systemconsole_22_2\qprogrammer\syscon\bin>system-console.exe --debug --cli --rc_script=intel_test.txt

 

Terminal 2, after terminal 1 is done (~5-10s):

 

telnet 127.0.0.1 2540
get_service_types

 

In CLI, I receive an error message:

 

Executing client(sock2304)'s command: "get_service_types"
Sep 29, 2022 12:03:22 PM com.altera.systemconsole.scripting.TCLCommand execute2

ErrorCode: NONE
ErrorInfo:

While in GUI, everything works fine:

Thanks for the feedback. I will try to duplicate the issue and feedback to the engineering team.

Please do expect that any work involving engineering will take some-time (a few days to a few weeks) depending on the complexity of the issue.


In the meantime, since the GUI is workable. Please use GUI as workaround for now.


Regards,

Richard

Thank you. Please keep me updated. "vwait forever" is an imporant command, as it speeds up my application by 10x

Using CLI also speeds it up by 5x vs GUI.

Get to know from the engineering team may takes a longer time to look into this.

In the mean time, please use GUI interface as a workaround,

From the engineering feedback, the first case is a known problem with KDB https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/programmable/articles/000087924.html

Could you try the solution provided in the KDB?

 

For the 2nd case, may I know want would you like to achieve using the telnet route?

 

Best Regards,

Richard Tan

Hi,


Do you able to try out the KDB solution and see if it resolve your issue?

Also, could you help to provide clarification as to why you want to use the telnet route for system console?

As per engineering POV, this feature is not officially supported.


Regards,

Richard Tan

Hi @RichardTanSY_Intel ,

 

I am using telnet to send commands to the FPGA (master_read / master_write / download_sof) from other programs (python/...). 

If telnet is not supported, could you provide a supported protocol to do so?
