Thanks for the quick answer. I actually had already discussed that with Terry and he was also unaware of such an option in nengo_spinnaker, right @tcstewar?
I also took a look at the sPyNNaker codebase and indeed there is no such reference. However the option that I mentioned in my previous post was pointed out to me by Andrew Rowley from the Spinnaker team, which I quote:
" To enable this, you simply have to add the following to your .spynnaker.cfg file (you only need to add [Reports] if it doesn’t already exist):
write_energy_report = True
This tells the software to add additional “provenance items” regarding the energy consumption estimates. These items will be in the provenance subfolder of the reports for the last run; this might be in an XML file called power_provenance.xml, or, in more recent git versions of the software, in a provenance database with “power_provenance” as the source_name in the provenance_view."
Is that heplful somehow? Thanks again for looking into it.
