Document Table of Contents DSE II Computing Resources

You can configure DSE II to take advantage of your computing resources to run the design explorations. In the DSE II GUI, the Setup page contains the job launch options, and the Status page allows you to monitor and control jobs.
DSE II supports running compilations on your local computer or a remote host through LSF, SSH or Torque. For SSH, you can also define a comma-separated list of remote hosts.

If you have a laptop or standard computer, you can use the single compilation feature to compile your design on a workstation with higher computing performance and memory capacity.

When running on a compute farm, you can direct the DSE II to safely exit after submitting all the jobs while the compilations continue to run until completion. Optionally, you can receive an e-mail when the compilations are complete.

If you launch jobs using SSH, the remote host must enable public and private key authentication. For private keys encrypted with a pass phrase, the remote host must run the ssh key agent to decrypt the private key, so the quartus_dse executable can access the key.

Note: Windows remote hosts require Cygwin's sshd server and PuTTY.
