  1. Hi, Recently I was working on updates to my environment and had to switch to set_inst_override from set_type_override to be able to override the base_sequence with a different sequence for different master agents. Code in base_test to start sequence on master sequencer :: master_base_seq seq = master_base_seq::type_id::create("seq",this,"masterName"); seq.start(top.virtual_sequencer.masterSequencer); Code in test for initial override :: master_base_seq::type_id::set_inst_override(master_user1_seq::get_type,"masterName.seq"); Now, later in test I need to change this override so that I can start another sequence on the same master. Coming from the set_type_override usage, i ended up writing below code :: master_base_seq::type_id::set_inst_override(master_user2_seq::get_type,"masterName.seq"); I observed that second time, the master still started the master_user1_seq instead the intended master_user2_seq. I printed the factory to see whether the override was registered or not, and I got below print :: # Instance Overrides: # # Requested Type Override Path Override Type # ------------------------- --------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------- # master_base_seq masterName.seq master_user1_seq # master_base_seq masterName.seq master_user2_seq After some experiments, I found that second time I need to use below override to be able to start the master_user2_seq on the master :: master_user1_seq::type_id::set_inst_override(master_user2_seq::get_type,"masterName.seq"); Above approach works, but have 2 issues :: 1. It's not consistent with the set_type_override usage. 2. This requires to keep track of last set_inst_override type in-order to override the inst with new type. I ended-up updating the uvm-1.2 library in-order to make the set_inst_override usage in-line with set_type_override as below:: In the check_inst_override_exists method in uvm_factory_.svh file - 1. I commented the same override_type check This way I only check whether the new request is for existing original_type and same full_inst_path. 2. When I get the match, I simply override the existing override with the new override_type and override_type_name. Updated code looks as below :: // check_inst_override_exists // -------------------------- function bit uvm_default_factory::check_inst_override_exists (uvm_object_wrapper original_type, uvm_object_wrapper override_type, string full_inst_path); uvm_factory_override override; uvm_factory_queue_class qc; if (m_inst_override_queues.exists(original_type)) qc = m_inst_override_queues[original_type]; else return 0; for (int index=0; index<qc.queue.size(); ++index) begin override = qc.queue[index]; if (override.full_inst_path == full_inst_path && override.orig_type == original_type && /*override.ovrd_type == override_type &&*/ //Commented check override.orig_type_name == original_type.get_type_name()) begin uvm_report_info("DUPOVRD",{"Instance override for '", original_type.get_type_name(),"' already exists: override type '", override_type.get_type_name(),"' with full_inst_path '", full_inst_path,"'"},UVM_HIGH); override.ovrd_type = override_type; // New Line override.ovrd_type_name = override_type.get_type_name(); //New Line return 1; end end return 0; endfunction With above change the set_inst_override usage becomes same as set_type_override. I am able to override inst for a object/component any number of time while using the same base_type and full_inst_path. Please, let me know, if this change or a batter solution can be incorporated in the next release. Thanks, Chintan
  2. Hi Mastrick, Thanks for the reply. Can we have similar replace argument for set_inst_override? that would make more sense and debug will be less complex. Also, it will enable more simple inst_override usage. Thanks, Chintan
