Design Space Explorer Parallel Compilation

The design space explorer has options for the number of maximum parallel compilations and also the maximum number of CPUs.

Is the maximum number of CPUs the number of CPUs for ALL parallel compilations combined or is it the number of CPUs for each parallel compilation?

The number of CPUs is the number of core processor detected on your local machine, that you can use, to perform the number of parallel compilation that you set.

Example. no. of CPU - 4; no. of parallel compilation - 2 : The DSE tool will use 2 core processor to run 4 compilations parallel.

And if you set no. of seed to 10, it will run 4 compilation first, then another 4, and lastly 2.


Take note that* Performing more than one compilation requires significant computing power, memory resources, and additional Quartus Prime licenses.
