After testing my weighted QAOA code on the simulators, I wanted to experiment with the available IBM hardware via the plugin. I submitted the job but I don’t see any output in pennylane. Here’s the warning I get:
WARNING:urllib3.connectionpool:Retrying (PostForcelistRetry(total=4, connect=3, read=None, redirect=None, status=None)) after connection broken by ‘ReadTimeoutError(“HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘api.quantum-computing.ibm.com’, port=443): Read timed out. (read timeout=None)”)’: /api/Network/ibm-q/Groups/open/Projects/main/Jobs/6076e9a24c1aae1c26a920b6/v/1
I am not sure what this exactly means. On the other hand, I have a job that is complete when I check my IBM Experience account but the run time is only 7.2 seconds which leads me to believe that only the first iteration of QAOA (p=1) was taken in as the job.
Besides, is there any way to set the optimization level 3 while qiskit transpiles the circuit I sent in from pennylane? It seems like one can do it if they use qiskit end to end but is there a way to do this via pennylane? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
