Subject: Re: [OMPI users] openib segfaults with Torque
From: Fischer, Greg A. (fischega_at_[hidden])

I ran the following with my debug build of OpenMPI 1.8.1 - after opening a terminal on a compute node with "qsub -l nodes 2 -I":

        mpirun -mca btl openib,self -mca btl_base_verbose 100 -np 2 ring_c &> output.txt

Output and backtrace are attached. Let me know if I can provide anything else.

Thanks for looking into this,

Can you run with "--mca btl_base_verbose 100" on your debug build so that we can get some additional output to see why UDCM is failing to setup properly?
