Hi Rudolf,

The configurational temperature was used to better identify deviations
from sampling a proper canonical ensemble for DPD simulations with a
too-large time step, as compared to the kinetic temperature:

I've used it to calibrate integration timesteps with a multimestepping

I'll work on the documentation.
