5.18. Driver and utilities
Added support for C600 die temperature sensors.
Command Line Tools
--all-linksto support C600.
Added the facility to specify the multi-IPU device to
--all-linksso a subset of IPUs can be tested.
Added support for float8 in
IPUoF client: Add
get_contiguous_remote_buffer()to decrease host memory usage.
This allows remote buffers to exist only on the IPU-Machine, reducing the memory footprint on the host.
Poplar will make use of this feature where it can.
Fixed data-integrity check for
gc-iputraffictest --all-linkswhere one IPU wasn’t correctly checked in certain cases.
Capture correct clock speed on Bow machines.
serverHostto error message when failing to interact with V-IPU server.
NLC error count totals are accumulated only when the link is up.
IPUoF client: Add destination IP address to all client log messages.
Each IPU issues a detach mailbox command. This is to support power-saving modes on Bow-2000 systems.
Remove functions from GCDA that assume a default IPU.
