To trace the progress of EasyBuild while it is installing software, you
eb --trace is used, EasyBuild will print additional output on top
of the standard output, which only mentions which step of the
installation procedure is being executed (without any further details).
This output includes:
- location of build and install directories
- list of sources and patches
- modules being loaded
- executed commands
- results of the sanity check
- location of generated module file
For each (non-trivial) executed command, the location to a temporary log file will be provided so the output of that command can be monitored while it is running. In addition, the start time of the command is printed, to allow determining how long the command has been running.
