Subject: Re: [OMPI users] OpenMPI job initializing problem
From: Beichuan Yan (beichuan.yan_at_[hidden])

I agree there are two cases for pure-MPI mode: 1. Job fails with no apparent reason; 2 job complains shared-memory file on network file system, which can be resolved by " export TMPDIR=/home/yanb/tmp", /home/yanb/tmp is my local directory. The default TMPDIR points to a Lustre directory.

There is no any other output. I checked my job with "qstat -n" and found that processes were actually not started on compute nodes even though PBS Pro has "started" my job.

It looks like you have two general cases:

1. The job fails for no apparent reason (like above), or 2. The job complains that your TMPDIR is on a shared filesystem

Right?

I think the real issue, then, is to figure out why your jobs are failing with no output.

Is there anything in the stderr output?
