Commit the property changes of the current hardware object. Inputs can be hw_server, hw_target, hw_device or hw_sysmon objects. At least one object is required.


commit_hw_sysmon [‑quiet] [‑verbose] <hw_objects>


Name Description
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
<hw_objects> hardware objects




The commit_hw_sysmon command takes the current property values defined on a hw_sysmon object, and commits them to the system monitor registers on the hardware device.

When you change the property values on the hw_sysmon object, like the CONFIG.* properties, they are not written to the hardware device until you use the commit_hw_sysmon command.

This command returns nothing if successful, or returns an error if it fails.


-quiet - (Optional) Execute the command quietly, returning no messages from the command. The command also returns TCL_OK regardless of any errors encountered during execution.
Note: Any errors encountered on the command-line, while launching the command, will be returned. Only errors occurring inside the command will be trapped.
-verbose - (Optional) Temporarily override any message limits and return all messages from this command.
Note: Message limits can be defined with the set_msg_config command.

<hw_objects> - (Optional) Commit the properties of the specified hw_sysmon object. The system monitor object can be specified as the hw_sysmon object, or as the system monitor through the associated hw_device, hw_target, or hw_server objects.

Note: The objects must be specified using the appropriate get_hw_xxx command, for instance get_hw_sysmon, rather than specified by name.


The following example sets the unipolar/bipolar configuration register property on the hw_sysmon object, and then commits that value to the system monitor of the current hardware device:

set_property CONFIG_REG.BU 1 [get_hw_sysmon]
commit_hw_sysmon [lindex [get_hw_sysmons] 0]
