The AI Engine provides the ability to output a summary of AI Engine status, which include error events that have occurred. Warnings are also issued when a deadlock is detected in the hardware. The status and warnings can be further analyzed in Vitis Analyzer for debug purposes.

There are two ways to output AI Engine status when running designs in hardware.
  • Automated and periodic AI Engine status output: After initial setup in xrt.ini, this method requires minimal user intervention, because the tool will output periodic status at specified time intervals.
  • Manual output the AI Engine status: You must run a command each time you want a status output report.

You can then open the status output in Vitis Analyzer for further analysis.

This section covers the steps needed to obtain status output, and analysis of that output. For more details on understanding stalls, see AI Engine Stall Analysis in Vitis Analyzer.
