cliffc Posted January 3, 2014 Report Share Posted January 3, 2014 What is the best way to measure simulation time using QuestaSim? I would like to do some same-tool benchmarks to measure simulation performance improvements using different coding styles or tricks using the same simulator. I do not intend to do cross-tool benchmarking; only same-tool benchmarking. I will check to see if techniques used with one tool also cause similar performance improvements across multiple tools, but I will not report actual speed differences between the tools (in accordance with my tool-usage agreements with multiple vendors). I am trying to identify best performance coding practices. The best technique I currently have is to do: "time vsim -c -do "run -all" top-level-module" This reports: real / user / sys times.
