Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Using OPENMPI configured for MX, GM and OPENIB interconnects
From: twurgl_at_[hidden]

I see. My one script for all clusters calls

mpirun --mca btl openib,mx,gm,tcp,sm,self ....

so I'd need to add some logic above the mpirun line to figure out what
cluster I am on to setup the correct mpirun line.

still seems like I should be able to do the mpirun line I have and just
tell me what it found, not what it can't find.

thanks for the workaround...

You can use:

$ mpirun -mca pml ob1 -mca mx,sm,self ...

when running with MX. Substitute gm or ib when running on those

It may still fail over to TCP. To avoid that, you could run:

$ mpirun -mca pml ob1 -mca ^mx,^ib,^tcp ...

to tell it to run on anything (GM, shared memory and self) except MX,
IB, and TCP.

You probably do not need -mca pml ob1, but that will prevent the MX
MTL from trying to start as well.
