This section discusses debugging issues related to the interaction of the host code and the accelerated kernels. Problems with these interactions manifest as issues such as machine hangs or application hangs. Although the GDB debug environment might help with isolating the errors in some cases (xprint), such as hangs associated with specific kernels, these issues are best debugged using the dmesg and xbutil commands as shown here.

If the process of hardware debugging does not resolve the problem, it is necessary to perform hardware debugging using the ChipScope feature.
