Instrumentation Tab (View Menu) (Platform Designer)

You open this tab in Platform Designer by clicking View > Instrumentation.

You use the Platform Designer Instrumentation tab in to set up real-time performance monitoring using throughput metrics such as read and write transfers. The Add debug instrumentation to the Platform Designer Interconnect option allows you to interact with the Bus Analyzer Toolkit, which you can access on the Tools menu in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.

Platform Designer supports performance monitoring for only Avalon® -MM interfaces. In your Platform Designer system, you can monitor the performance of no less than three, and no greater than 15 components at one time. The performance monitoring feature works with Intel® Quartus® Prime software devices 13.1 and newer.

Note: For more information about the Bus Analyzer Toolkit and the Platform Designer Instrumentation tab, refer to the Bus Analyzer Toolkit page.
