The dump restart keyword

From GPUMD
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Purpose

Dump data to the restart file.

Grammar

  • This keyword only requires a single parameter, which is the output interval (number of steps) of updating the restart file:
   dump_restart interval

Examples

To update the restart file every 1000 steps for a run, one can add

   dump_restart 1000

before the run keyword.

Caveats

  • This keyword is not propagating. That is, its effect will not be passed from one run to the next.
