To debug your code start by reading your code out loud. Do at least 2 iterations of your process.
What we see is that you are calling InitSeed before generating each data value.
Why is this a problem? Verification uses pseudo random. Each seed always produces the same sequence of values. For verification pseudo random is required so your tests are repeatable or stable. When you fix a bug, you need the same sequencing (test case) that caused the failure to run to verify the fix.
You need a loop so your InitSeed only runs once.
If you want to infinitely generate data use something like the following:
process variable RV:RandomPType; variable b:std_logic_vector( 7downto 0); begin RV.Initseed(RV’instance_name); loop wait until reset=’1? and rising_edge(clk); b:=RV.RandSlv(0,255,8); uat_data<=b; end loop ; end process;
