2.1.3. Compilation Monitoring
For a project and revision that is being compiled from the command line and you open that design in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition GUI, you can choose to switch the GUI to a monitoring mode.
In monitoring mode, you can monitor the progress of the command-line compilation in the Compilation Dashboard without affecting the command-line compilation. You can also view reports, view messages, and cross-probe to source files.
If multiple revisions of a project are being compiled simultaneously, you can choose which revision compilation to monitor.
You cannot stop a monitored compilation in the GUI. You must stop it from the command line.
After a monitored compilation finishes, the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition GUI automatically switches out of monitoring mode. However, if a new command-line compilation for the same project and revision starts, you are prompted to reenter monitoring mode.
You can start and exit the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition GUI in monitoring mode as often as you like without affecting the progress of the compilation underway.
