After establishing the performance baseline, the next step is to determine which functions should be accelerated in the device.
Tip: Minimize changes to the existing code at this point so you can quickly generate a working design on the FPGA and get the baselined performance and resource numbers.

When selecting functions to accelerate in hardware, there are two aspects to consider:

Performance bottlenecks
Which functions are in application hot spots?
Acceleration potential
Do these functions have the potential for acceleration?
