Currently the Cactus testsuite system has not way to select which tests to run other than using the interactive menus shown by make sim-testsuite. Simfactory works around this by copying only the tests requested by a user to the run directory.

Pull request https://bitbucket.org/cactuscode/cactus/pull-requests/82/rhaas-testslist/diff adds an environment (or make for that matter) variable CCTK_TESTSUITE_RUN_TESTS that can be set to the list of thorns and / or test parfiles to run. It uses the same syntax that simfactory uses, so eg “GRHydro” will run all GRHydro tests while “GRHydro Carpet/kasner_amr” would run all GRHydro tests as well as the “kasner_amr” test in Carpet.
