Subject: Re: [OMPI users] sge tight intregration leads to bad allocation

Hi Ralf,

I haven't tried any of the 1.5 series yet (we have chosen not to use the features releases) but if this is mandatory for you to work on this topic, I will.

This might be of interest to Reuti and you : it seems that we cannot reproduce the problem anymore if we don't provide the "-np N" option on the orterun command line. Of course, we need to launch a few other runs to be really sure because the allocation error was not always observable. Actually, I recently understood (from Reuti) that the tight integration mode would supply every necessary bits to the launcher and thus I removed the '-np N' that was around... Could it be that using the '-np N' while using the sge tight integration mode is pathologic ?

Regards,
Eloi

Could well be a bug in OMPI - I can take a look, though it may be awhile before I get to it. Have you tried one of the 1.5 series releases?

Here is the actual output for this node:
