PetscCUDAInitialize

Initializes the CUDA device and cuBLAS on the device

Synopsis

#include "petscsys.h"   
PetscErrorCode PetscCUDAInitialize(MPI_Comm comm)
Logically collective

Input Parameter

comm - the MPI communicator that will utilize the CUDA devices

Options Database

-cuda_initialize <default yes,no> - do the initialization in PetscInitialize(). If -cuda_initialize no is used then the default initialization is done automatically when the first CUDA call is made unless you call PetscCUDAInitialize() before any CUDA operations are performed
-cuda_view - view information about the CUDA devices
-cuda_synchronize - wait at the end of asynchronize CUDA calls so that their time gets credited to the current event; default with -log_view
-cuda_set_device <gpu> - integer number of the device

Notes

Initializing cuBLAS takes about 1/2 second there it is done by default in PetscInitialize() before logging begins
