## Task #3026

Updated by Alan Gray 4 months ago

To activate the GPU path for force buffer ops, we should use two flags:

* -one one indicating whether the feature is enabled (e.g. gpuBufferOpsEnabled)- gpuBufferOpsEnabled)

* -another another indicating whether this step it should be used (e.g. useGpuBufferOpsWithReduction)- useGpuBufferOpsWithReduction)

At least the latter should ideally be in the ppForceWorkload data structure which seems to be the natural place where we want to describe what work is happening on this rank.

* Also consider all possible combinations of triggers, and how to combine optimally in each case evaluate what flags / logic is n
