As shown below, the Analysis view can be arranged into three views as shown below. The different views can be opened, closed, and rearranged as needed.

Figure 1. Analysis View
Report Navigator
On the left side, this view lists all open summary files and associated reports. The Analysis view displays the hierarchy of reports generated from build and run of components in the open workspace of the Vitis IDE, or displays a selection of Summary files separately opened. You can use this view to quickly find and open a report.

When you click any file in Report Navigator, it opens as a new tab in the Report Window. Opening a file adds a black dot next to the report name in Report Navigator to indicate the report is already open. Selecting an open report wil simply bring it to the front in the Report Window.

Report Window
The center area displays the contents of the summary files and open reports. You can have multiple reports open in the Reports view, and quickly change from one report to another by selecting the window tab at the top of the view.

All the reports related to the Compile Summary, Link Summary, or Run Summary are grouped together within a single container.

Code Viewer
The optional Code Viewer is opened on the right side of the workspace. This lets you view and edit source code, based on feedback from the various reports. You can open the Source Code window by selecting a link in another report such as the Graph report for instance.

The Analysis view supports cross-probing between reports, such as within the Graph or Array diagrams, and from the Guidance report to other reports. Select the link in a report as shown below, and it will highlight the content in another open report, or open a file in the Code Viewer.

Figure 2. Cross-Probe Between Reports

Reports that are currently opened in Vitis analyzer will display an "out-of-date" banner if the summary files or reports have been updated on the disk, due to recompiling or rerunning the application for instance. You can keep working in the open report, or reload the updated files.

To close open reports you can right-click the report in the Report Navigator and select Close Tab. You can also right-click a Summary file, as shown below and select Close Tabs to close all open reports associated with that Summary file.
