Quick Start & Tools¶
For some users, they may be able to quickly start and run InTime without any additional configuration. This assumes InTime Server and License are installed successfully.
Quick Start Options¶
Pre-requisite: Ensure the FPGA tool executable is in the environment PATH variable.
Launch InTime Client with InTime Server and License located at the IP address 126.96.36.199, using a port number of 33940, and opening a Vivado project.
$ ./intme.sh -ip 188.8.131.52 -comport 33940 -tc vivado
Below is an explanation of the arguments used in the command.
|ip||This is the InTime Server/License IP address|
|comport||This is the network port required to connect to the server.|
|tc||FPGA vendor tool type. Options include
Specify the InTime Server as part of the LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable, e.g. email@example.com where 184.108.40.206 is the InTime Server IP. The InTime Client will automatically picks up the required information.
$ export LM_LICENSE_FILEfirstname.lastname@example.org $ ./intime.sh -tc vivado
Quick Setup - LSF/SGE/PBS¶
For LSF/SGE/PBS users, after launching InTime, run this command in the Tcl console. For example, for LSF,
misc set grid lsf
For more information about customizing the grid commands and configuration, please refer to LSF/SGE/PBS configuration. Other grids such as
PBS are also supported.
The quick start is meant to enable user to start running quickly, with some pre-requisites. In the event that the quick start does not work, the environments need to be setup manually.
To setup the environment manually, there are a few options to configure the InTime Server and build environment.
- Admin Web Portal (Browser)
- Private Cloud Console (InTime GUI)
- Admin Console (Terminal)
Admin Web Portal¶
The InTime Server Admin Web Portal allows users to configure InTime Server settings from a web browser, making configuration faster and easier.
Please refer to Admin Web Portal page for more information.
Private Cloud Console¶
Type the commands in the console to execute them. You do not require access to InTime Server to execute them.
If the console is not visible, it must be enabled from within the InTime GUI by enabling it as shown below
If you have access to the InTime Server, there is an administration console provided for configuration tasks. The InTime Server only allows localhost for admin access by default. The user has to start InTime Server with an additional argument to make admin mode available to all users. See section on Remote Administration
To launch the Admin Console:
$ pwd /home/intime/intimeserver $ ./admin_console.sh InTime Server version: 1.1.0 Git: v1.2.0 (Build cd64f0b) Type ".help" for instructions. For help on any command, type ".help.<command>" user>
After launching the console, enter Admin mode using the
Admin mode and return to
User mode, type
.user. To exit the Admin Console when in User mode, type
