Description fabien chêne 2016-01-20 13:56:23 UTC
Quite annoying, it is not possible to get rid of the PaStix welcome message when declaring a solver.

#include <Eigen/PaStiXSupport>

template <class SOLVER>
void f()
    SOLVER solver; // gossip
    solver.iparm(IPARM_VERBOSE) = API_VERBOSE_NOT; // too late
    // next actions are silent

int main()

The code above displays the welcome message three times. This is annoying when one need to create a solver frequently, and causes a performance issue as well.

Here is the welcome message I am talking about:

AUTOSPLIT_COMM : global rank : 0, inter node rank 0, intra node rank 0, threads 1
 +              PaStiX : Parallel Sparse matriX package               +
 +  Options                                                           +
... etc

Could the default verbosity be set to API_VERBOSE_NOT ? Or provide a mecanism to silent it ?

Indeed, the default should be API_VERBOSE_NOT!
