The Analysis view replaces the AMD Vitis™ Analyzer tool to provide an integrated view of the build and run summaries generated by the Vitis tools. The integrated analysis view provides ready access to view the results of a specific compilation step, or run or debug results, letting you quickly move between development and analysis.

You can open and use Vitis Analyzer in a number of different ways.

  1. Use Vitis Analyzer to review specific summary files from a variety of projects by opening the tool and summary directly:
    • Open the tool using the vitis_analyzer command (or vitis -a) and then select Open Summary to view the reports.
    • Open the tool with a specified summary file using vitis_analyzer <summary_file> (or vitis -a <summary>).
      Tip: You can also specify a folder, such as a workspace directory, and the tool will scan the sub-folders for summary reports to open.
  2. Use Vitis Analyzer to review the reports generated for the current workspace in the IDE by selecting the Analysis view to see the hierarchy of reports, or by selecting the reports directly from the Flow Navigator for the active component.
  3. Combine these two methods, by using the Analysis view to see the hierarchy of reports generated for the open workspace, and open Summary files independently.
Tip: When you open vitis_analyzer for the first time, you are reminded that you are launching the new Vitis analyzer tool. You can also launch the legacy tool by using the vitis_analyzer --classic command. You can disable that message for future iterations.

When the Vitis Analyzer is opened from the command line, the tool displays a Welcome screen as shown in the following figure. The Analyze Reports box shows commands specific to the Analysis view of the tool.
