Advanced runtime options
When calling the primitives, you can pass in options by using the
Options class or when using the
run method. Two of the most popular options are
resilience_level, which are different compilation and error mitigation techniques offered directly through Qiskit Runtime.
With Q-CTRL's performance management, you don't need to specify any options. The circuit execution is always optimized for the chosen backend. This allows you to focus on the algorithm and use case, rather than how to get the best performance out of the hardware.
Note: Because Q-CTRL performance management is completely automated, setting and passing options is not supported. Error suppression and mitigation are applied regardless of options specified.
The following table lists the generally available primitive options and the expected values for instances configured with Q-CTRL:
|Q-CTRL expected input
Setting optimization or resilience level to 0 will result in a runtime error. Other values besides the "Q-CTRL expected input" will trigger a runtime warning.
If you do want to try out the default optimization and resilience settings on Qiskit Runtime, you can toggle between instances and compare results, as shown in the Get started guide.
