To test preCICE after building, run ctest inside the build directory.

This will execute 3 types of tests:

  • Component-wise unit tests
  • Integration tests
  • Compilation and run tests based on example programs

For technical reasons, unit and integration tests require preCICE to be compiled with MPI enabled.

To display log output for tests use ctest -VV or ctest --output-on-failure. To change the log level of the output, set the environment variable export BOOST_TEST_LOG_LEVEL=all|test_suite|warning.

Please note that debug and trace logs require preCICE to be built using -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug.

The next step

The next step concludes the installation guide by installing preCICE.
