cuSPARSELt Logging Features¶

Logging mechanism in cuSPARSELt can be enabled by setting the following environment variables before running the target application:


while level is one of the following levels:

  • 0: Off - logging is disabled (default)

  • 1: Error - only errors will be logged

  • 2: Trace - API calls that launch CUDA kernels will log their parameters and important information

  • 3: Hints - hints that can potentially improve the application’s performance

  • 4: Info - provides general information about the library execution, may contain details about heuristic status

  • 5: API Trace - API calls will log their parameter and important information


while mask is a combination of the following masks:

  • 0: Off

  • 1: Error

  • 2: Trace

  • 4: Hints

  • 8: Info

  • 16: API Trace


while file_name is a path to a logging file. File name may contain %i, that will be replaced with the process id. E.g <file_name>_%i.log.

If CUSPARSELT_LOG_FILE is not defined, the log messages are printed to stdout.
