I am trying to send a MPI job to selected cores on a 64 cores machine. With
taskset I use:
mpirun -np 8 taskset -c 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15 program
but if I substitute taskset by hwloc-bind doing
mpirun -np 8 hwloc-bind core:1 core:3 core:5 core:7 core:9 core:11 core:13
it does not work. In the following thread:
The answer was:
"Each hwloc-bind command in the mpirun above doesn't know that there
are other hwloc-bind instances on the same machine. All of them bind
their process to all cores in the first socket. "
Is there something wrong if I do:
hwloc-bind core:1 core:3 core:5 core:7 core:9 core:11 core:13 core:15 mpirun -
np 8 program
Is the an easier way to tell mpirun the individual cores?
Thanks a lot.
