Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Call stack upon MPI routine error

Hi, Vince

Couple of ideas off the top of my head:

1. Try disabling eager RDMA. Eager RDMA can consume significant resources: "-mca btl_openib_use_eager_rdma 0"

2. Try using the TCP BTL - is the error still present?

3. Try the poor man's debugger - print the pid and hostname of the process when and then put a while(1) at btl_openib_component.c:3492 so that the process will hang when it hits this error. Hop over to the node and attach to the hung process. You can move up the call stack from here.

OpenMPI folks:

        I have mentioned before a problem with an in-house code (ScalIT) that generates the error message

[[31552,1],84][btl_openib_component.c:3492:handle_wc] from compute-4-5.local to: compute-4-13 error polling LP CQ with status LOCAL QP OPERATION ERROR status number 2 for wr_id 246f300 opcode 128 vendor error 107 qp_idx 0

at a specific, reproducible point. It was suggested that the error could be due to memory problems, such as the amount of registered memory. I have already corrected the amount of registered memory per the URLs that were given to me. My question today is two-fold:

First, is it possible that ScalIT uses so much memory that there is no memory to register for IB communications? ScalIT is very memory-intensive and has to run distributed just to get a large matrix in memory (split between nodes).

Second, is there a way to trap that error so I can see the call stack, showing the MPI function called and exactly where in the code the error was generated?
