#CosmoSIS Error Report
The cosmosis_error_report tool helps you collect together information to report an error when running CosmoSIS. It won't help much with scientific errors - it is mainly designed for code problems.
If you normally run:
then you can change that to:
This will collect various pieces of information about your system. It makes a text file listing:
- the files in the CosmoSIS directory and subdirectories (not the file contents)
- any changes you have made to CosmoSIS files
- all environment variables
- the ini files you are running on
- the standard output of the run
If there's any secret information in any of these things, for example if you have foolishly set an environment to contain a password in, or have a file whose very name is secret, like GR_is_wrong.txt, then you shouldn't send the results to anyone.
The program will create a zipped text file and open a web page where you can file an issue about your problem, if you wish.
You can run:
to get information on the other options the program provides:
--mpi MPI Run under MPI with this many processes (you do *NOT* need to use mpirun - this script will do that for you). --no-web Do not open a web browser to create an issue at the end, for example if you are running remotely on a cluster. --no-zip Do not zip up the output at the end, in case you want to look at it first.
