Manager Command Line Arguments

The manager provides built-in help output for the command line arguments it supports if you run firesim --help

On this page, we will go through some of these options -- others are more complicated, so we will give them their own section on the following pages.

--runtimeconfigfile FILENAME

This lets you specify a custom runtime config file. By default, config_runtime.ini is used. See :ref:`config-runtime` for what this config file does.

--buildconfigfile FILENAME

This lets you specify a custom build config file. By default, config_build.ini is used. See :ref:`config-build` for what this config file does.

--buildrecipesconfigfile FILENAME

This lets you specify a custom build recipes config file. By default, config_build_recipes.ini is used. See :ref:`config-build-recipes` for what this config file does.

--hwdbconfigfile FILENAME

This lets you specify a custom hardware database config file. By default, config_hwdb.ini is used. See :ref:`config-hwdb` for what this config file does.

--overrideconfigdata SECTION PARAMETER VALUE

This lets you override a single value from the runtime config file. For example, if you want to use a link latency of 3003 cycles for a particular run (and your config_runtime.ini file specifies differently), you can pass --overrideconfigdata targetconfig linklatency 6405 to the manager. This can be used with any task that uses the runtime config.

TASK

This is the only required/positional command line argument to the manager. It tells the manager what it should be doing. See the next section for a list of tasks and what they do. Some tasks also take other command line arguments, which are specified with those tasks.
