Subject: [OMPI users] problem with rankfile and openmpi-1.6.2
From: Siegmar Gross (Siegmar.Gross_at_[hidden])

Hi,

I want to test process bindings with a rankfile in openmpi-1.6.2. Both
machines are dual-processor dual-core machines running Solaris 10 x86_64.

tyr fd1026 138 cat host_sunpc0_1
sunpc0 slots=4
sunpc1 slots=4

tyr fd1026 139 cat rankfile
rank 0=sunpc0 slot=0:0-1,1:0-1
rank 1=sunpc1 slot=0:0-1
rank 2=sunpc1 slot=1:0
rank 3=sunpc1 slot=1:1

tyr fd1026 140 mpiexec -rf rankfile hostname
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
All nodes which are allocated for this job are already filled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is something wrong with my rankfile, must I add a hostfile, or is it a
bug? I get the following error when I add a hostfile.

tyr fd1026 141 mpiexec -hostfile host_sunpc0_1 -rf rankfile hostname
[tyr.informatik.hs-fulda.de:20227] [[27927,0],0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG:

  at line 927
^Cmpiexec: abort is already in progress...hit ctrl-c again to forcibly
  terminate

I get the following outputs when I use Linux instead of Solaris
(same hardware).

"tyr" is a Sparc machine running Solaris 10. I get a similar error if
I run the command on a Linux machine.

Thank you very much for any suggestion in advance.
