Subject: [OMPI users] Calculation stuck in MPI
From: Ondrej Marsalek (ondrej.marsalek_at_[hidden])

Dear everyone,

I have a calculation (the CP2K program) using MPI over Infiniband and
it is stuck. All processes (16 on 4 nodes) are running, taking 100%
CPU. Attaching a debugger reveals this (only the end of the stack
shown here):

(gdb) backtrace
#0 0x00002b3460916dbf in btl_openib_component_progress () from
#1 0x00002b345c22c778 in opal_progress () from
#2 0x00002b345bd2d66d in ompi_request_default_wait_any () from
#3 0x00002b345bd6021a in PMPI_Waitany () from
#4 0x00002b345bae77f1 in pmpi_waitany__ () from

It has survived a restart of the IB switch, unlike "healthy" runs. My
question is - is it obvious at what level the problem is? IB, Open
MPI, application?I would be glad to provide detailed information, if
anyone was willing to help. I want to work on this, but unfortunately
I am not sure where to begin.

Best regards,
