The Design Runs window is a useful starting point for analysis. It displays the state of the current runs. For more information, see this link in the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Using the Vivado IDE (UG893).
The Design Runs window shows the status of runs (running, finished cleanly, or finished with errors).
The Design Runs window columns show the following:
- The name of the run
- The target part
- The constraints set associated with a run
- The run strategy
- The status of the last completed step of a run
- The progress of a run
- The start time of a run
- The elapsed time of a run during execution or the final runtime of a completed run
- The timing score of a run: WNS, TNS, WHS, THS, WBSS, and TPWS (see Report Timing Summary for more information on these numbers). This is where you can quickly verify that a run meets timing. If it does not meet timing, you must start the analysis with the Timing Summary Report.
Note: WBSS represents the Worst Bus Skew Slack reported by
- The number of nets that were not successfully routed
- The utilization of the design LUT, FF, block RAMs, DSP, and if applicable, UltraRAMs.
- The total power estimate
- A brief description of the run strategy
- Methodology check violations
- Available QoR suggestions
- The incremental mode of the design run
When you select a run, the right-click menu allows operations such as opening a run for further analysis and setting up run features such as incremental compile or QoR suggestions.
