Dear Madam/Sir,

I have a serial Fortran code (f90), dealing with matrix diagonalizing
subroutines, and recently got its parallel version to be faster in some
unfeasible parts via the serial program.
I have been using the following commands for initializing MPI in the code
---------------
    call MPI_INIT(ierr)
    call MPI_COMM_SIZE(MPI_COMM_WORLD, p, ierr)
    call MPI_COMM_RANK(MPI_COMM_WORLD, my_rank, ierr)

CPU requirement >> pmem=1500mb,nodes=5:ppn=8 <<
-------------------
Everything looks OK when matrix dimensions are less than 1000x1000. When I
increase the matrix dimensions to some larger values the parallel code gets
the following error
------------------
mpirun noticed that process rank 6 with PID 1566 on node node1082 exited on
signal 11 (Segmentation fault)
------------------
There is no such error with the serial version even for larger matrix
dimensions than 2400x2400. I then thought it might be raised by the number
of nodes and memory space I'm requiring. Then changed it as follows

pmem=10gb,nodes=20:ppn=2

which is more or less similar to what I'm using for serial jobs (
mem=10gb,nodes=1:ppn=1). But the problem persists still. Is there any
limitation on MPI subroutines for transferring data size or the issue would
be raised by some cause else?

Best of Regards,
Mohammad
