The AMD Vivado™ integrated design environment (IDE) generates reports and messages to inform you of the state of the design or design processes during various tool interactions. Reports are generated by you (or by the tool) at key steps in the design flow. The reports summarize specific information about the design.

The tool generates messages automatically at each step of the design process, and for many user actions.

Messages and reports are stored in the Messages and Reports windows in the Results window area.

When you run any of the following commands, the tool starts a new process:

  • Run Synthesis
  • Run Implementation
  • launch_runs (Tcl)

For more information on Tcl commands, see the Vivado Design Suite Tcl Command Reference Guide (UG835), or type <command> -help.

The process generates messages and reports that persist on disk until you reset the run. Messages that relate to a run appear when a project is open. The tool displays only the messages for the active run in the Messages window.

Reports result from a variety of actions in the Vivado IDE:

  • When you load a design, many different reporting commands are available through the Tools menu.
  • Running Synthesis or Implementation creates reports as part of the run.
