You can uncheck "Add debug instrumentation to the Qsys interconnect" to save your current instrumentation setup. You must re-generate and re-compile your design when you select this checkbox and turn on your saved instrumentation setup.
- When not in use, turning off your instrumentation setup saves system resources.
When you make changes to your instrumentation setup, you must re-generate and re-compile your design.
- example: Adding or removing a master or slave component from your Qsys system.
- example: Adding or removing a performance monitor from the Instrumentation Panel.
- example: Turning off and turning back on your current instrumentation setup.
Read Transfer - per unit interval of time
- When monitoring a master, you can see how many data reads per second that this master achieves from all its slaves.
- When monitoring a slave, you can see how many data reads per second that this slave is delivering to all its masters.
Write Transfer - per unit interval of time
- When monitoring a master, you can see how many data writes per second that this master can get write commands into the fabric.
- When monitoring a slave, you can see how many data writes per second that this slave can accept write commands from all its masters.
We are actively planning work on the Bus Analyzer Toolkit to be released in a future version of Quartus II software. To that end, we would like to prioritize the work we do. Could you answer the following:
What would you like to see in future versions of the Bus Analyzer Toolkit?
What metrics would you like to track?
Please describe the system you would use the Bus Analyzer Toolkit for?
Is the size of the instrumentation modules a concern for you (or how large is too large)?
