Use ctest -j4 for CUDA builds by default for sems-rhel7 (ATDV-144, #4599, #4790, #4801)

Created by: bartlettroscoe


It appears that changing the ctest parallel test level from the default of 10 to 4 on 'ascicgpu15' seems to have fixed all of the test failures in the build:

  • Trilinos-atdm-sems-rhel7-cuda-9.2-Volta70-complex-static-release-debug

and therefore I also suspect for the build:

  • Trilinos-atdm-sems-rhel7-cuda-9.2-Volta70-complex-shared-release-debug

as the 'static' build has more errors than the 'shared' build. These builds support the ATDM APP Gemma (see TRIL-255).

Therefore, this change this would seem to resolve the issues #4599, #4790 (closed), and #4801 (closed).

See ATDV-144.

How Has This Been Tested?

I tested this on 'ascicgpu15' which should be identical to 'ascicgpu14' that runs the builds:

  • Trilinos-atdm-sems-rhel7-cuda-9.2-Volta70-complex-shared-release-debug
  • Trilinos-atdm-sems-rhel7-cuda-9.2-Volta70-complex-static-release-debug

I tested this on 'ascicgpu15' with:

$ cd /scratch/rabartl/Trilinos.base/BUILDS/ATDM/SEMS-RHEL7/CTEST_S/

$ ./ \

*** ./  sems-rhel7-cuda-9.2-Volta70-complex-static-release-debug

ATDM_TRILINOS_DIR = '/scratch/rabartl/Trilinos.base/Trilinos'

Load some env to get python, cmake, etc ...

This resulted in all 1982 passing tests in 24 labels! (MueLU is disabled due to #4599). So shoot, that appears to have fixed all of the runtime problems. It looks like we were overloading the GPU on 'ascicgpu14' (and hopefully 'ascicgpu15' is identical to 'ascgpu14' that runs the Jenkins jobs at night). Also, the wall-clock test only went up from 1h5m to 1h15m. This is a slam dunk.
