You are correct this is a ROCKS cluster. I didn't use the the --sge option when building (I tend to stay more generic, but I should have done that).

Not sure of the OFED release but I don't admin this cluster and the owners are picky about upgrades (tends to break Lustre).

BTW - the problem was solved. There was a configuration error for the specific queue. It was found and fixed and things seem to be running normally.

Thanks for help and I'm sorry for disturbing everyone. I wasn't familiar enough with the error messages to tell if it was OpenMPI or SGE.

When you built Open-MPI, did you use the


switch? Or if this is an OFED release, is it possible that this wasn't specified?

FWIW, this looks like a Rocks compute node ("compute-2-2.local" gives that away). The OFED Rolls in Rocks have had a few issues in the past with how they were built, so you may be running into that. If you didn't build it yourself, I'd suggest at least giving that a try.

Alternatively, OFED-1.4 is pretty good. Has a later version of Open-MPI than 1.3.x
