Subject: Re: [OMPI users] OpenMPI 1.6.1 with Intel Cluster Studio 2012

Did this ever get a followup? If not...

We've seen problems with specific versions of the Intel compiler that randomly set fault in strange places. The only solution was the upgrade the Intel compiler to the latest version in that series.

The OpenMPI itself builds fine as does the code I'm testing with. However when I try to run on more than about 16 processors the run seg faults and when I turn on traceback it seems to point to this call:

I even tried turned on debug mode for OpenMPI but I can't get any thing more specific as to why it is failing. I even tried compiling Intel MPI Benchmark, which failed in a similar way, which indicates that its a problem specifically with the interaction of MPI and the intel compiler and not the code I was working with.
