Description

CPU capabilities are listed in the log file, but it would be nice if we had a flag that detects GPUs, etc, and dumps it to stdout for better bug reports.

History

#1 Updated by Mark Abraham over 6 years ago

Useful GPU detection requires CUDA. You're suggesting that GPU-enabled mdrun print the hardware info we're presumably already detecting?

I think it's much better to keep this in the log file, where we already have all the CPU information. This is the file that users should return with their bug reports. That way we also get the information about settings in the tpr file, and whether there are any horribly large temperatures or something else bad in the system.

Szilard - let me know if there is any GPU hardware information we are not writing to the log file - then we can add that, otherwise I think we can close this for now.
