3. Running Diagnostics

Before running diagnostics, load an OpenCL* kernel to the board. The following instructions use the OpenCL* kernel or you may also use your own.

  1. Load OpenCL* kernel:
    $ aocl program acl0 vector_add.aocx 
    aocl program: Running program from /home/DCPsupport/intelrtestack/a10_gx_pac_ias_1_2_1_pv/opencl/opencl_bsp/linux64/libexec
    Program succeed. 
    
    Sample program output:
    aocl program: Running program from $OPAE_PLATFORM_ROOT/opencl/opencl_bsp \
    /linux64/libexec
    Program succeed.
  2. Run the simple diagnostic utility:
    $ aocl diagnose
    Sample diagnostic output:
