Subject: [OMPI users] Memory allocation with PGI compiler
I have a cluster of 16 nodes DualCPU DualCore AMD RAM 16 GB with InfiniBand
CISCO HCA and switch InfiniBand.
It uses Linux RH Enterprise 4 64 bit , OpenMPI 1.2.7, PGI 7.1-4 and
Hence it means that the option disable-ptmalloc2 is catastrophic in the
Can you help me about this issue in memory allocation in Openmpi 1.2.7 and

Thans in advance
