ISE - Is there a tool that can report CLB usage?

Description

Is there a tool that can report CLB usage?

Solution

No Xilinx tool currently reports CLB counts directly, but it is possible to get this information in the following ways:

PlanAhead
Use the Metrics view and sort by instances.
Sorting so that the CLBs with 0 instances are listed at the bottom will give you a row count of the number of CLBs that are used.

XDL
You can convert an NCD to XDL and then count the number of unique CLBs with a custom made script.
