Requires: FPGA Module
The LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server window appears when you compile an FPGA VI using the compile server on the local computer. You also can display this window manually by selecting Start»All Programs»National Instruments»LabVIEW»LabVIEW FPGA Utilities»Compile Server.
The LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server does not launch automatically when you run an FPGA VI that is compiled already or that you have not modified since the last compilation.
To free resources on the local computer, install the LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server on a remote computer and compile the FPGA VI remotely. Refer to the KnowledgeBase for information about installing the server on a remote computer.
Use the LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server window to view information about a compilation.
|Note This window does not close automatically when compilation finishes. You can close it by clicking the Stop Server button.|
This window contains the following components:
- Compile Status—Displays status information for the current compilation. The Compile Status section is disabled until the compilation begins.
- Server Service ID—Displays a number that is associated with the VI you are compiling. To view past compiles, click the Compile List button, and enter the Server Service ID in the numeric control to view the compilation report.
- Client Name—Displays the name of the computer on which the FPGA VI resides.
- Client Service ID—Displays the ID that is associated with the VI that is being compiled.
- Status—Displays the status of the compilation. Status updates throughout the compilation.
- Start Time—Displays the time that the server started compiling the VI.
- Last Update Time—Displays the time that the Compile Status information was last updated.
- Details—Displays information about the conversion of the VI into the bitstream that is downloaded to the FPGA.
- Configure—Displays the Configure Server dialog box. Use the Configure Server dialog box to configure properties for the LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server. You can fix timeout errors that appear when the LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server sends or receives files by increasing the Network timeout (ms) value.
- Compile List—Displays the Manage All Server Records dialog box, which you can use to browse all past and current compilations in the queue. You also can use the Manage All Server Records dialog box to delete information about old or unwanted LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server compilations.
- Server Status—Displays the status of the LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server.
- Stop Compilation—Cancels the current compilation.
- Stop Server—Shuts down the server. Stopping the LabVIEW FPGA Compile Server cancels current compilations.
