Subject: [OMPI devel] Send Recv Bandwidth
From: Nilesh Mahajan (nnmahaja_at_[hidden])
Date: 2013-03-11 16:06:31


I was comparing a simple Send-Recv program to another program with two
memcpy's to/from shared memory. Number of processes = 2 and different
array sizes (from 10^6 - 10^8 doubles) on IA64. With the --mca btl sm,self
options I get almost twice the bandwidth compared to the two memcpy's. I
looked at openmpi source and I cannot figure out if it's using anything
other than simple glibc memcpy. I must be missing something. Can somebody
please help?
