Once installed, issuing the command
will run the NIST average difficulty problem set on SciPy minmizers.
Running alternative problems
Other problems written in a supported file format
can be analyzed with FitBenchmarking by
passing the path using the
Example problems can be downloaded from
Benchmark problems, and they can also be found in the
fitbenchmarking/examples directory of the code.
For example, to run the NIST low difficulty set from the base directory of the source, type into the terminal:
fitbenchmarking -p examples/benchmark_problems/NIST/low_difficulty
Changing the options
An options file can also be passed with the
For example, the template file can be run by issuing the command
fitbenchmarking -o examples/options_template.ini \ -p examples/benchmark_problems/NIST/low_difficulty
Details about how the options file must be formatted are given in FitBenchmarking Options.
Changing the results directory
The default directory where the results are saved can be changed using the
--results-dir argument. The results directory option
can also be changed in the options file.
fitbenchmarking -r new_results/
The default results directory is
