No, -bynode/-byslot is for mapping not binding. I cannot explain
the different release versions of ompi_info and mpirun. Have you
done a which to see where each of them are located. Anyways, 1.3.3
does not have any of the -bind-to-* options.
Sorry, I should say one more thing about the 500 procs test.
I tried to run two 500 procs at the same time using SGE and it
runs fast and finishes at the same time as the single run. So I
think OpenMPI can handle them separately very well.
For the bind-to-core, I tried to run mpirun --help but not
find the bind-to-core info. I only see bynode or byslot options.
Is it same as bind-to-core? My mpirun shows version 1.3.3 but
ompi_info shows 1.4.2.
Thanks a lot.

Thanks for sending the mpirun run and error message. That

Here is what I meant: the results of 500 procs in fact
shows it with 272-304(<500) real cores, the
program's running time is good, which is almost five
times 100 procs' time. So it can be handled very well.
Therefore I guess OpenMPI or Rocks OS does make use of
hyperthreading to do the job. But with 600 procs, the
running time is more than double of that of 500 procs.
I don't know why. This is my problem.
BTW, how to use -bind-to-core? I added it as mpirun's
options. It always gives me error " the executable
'bind-to-core' can't be found. Isn't it like:
mpirun --mca btl_tcp_if_include eth0 -np 600
It's not recognizing the --bind-to-core option. (Single
hyphen, as you had, should also be okay.) Skimming
through the e-mail, it looks like you are using OMPI 1.3.2
and 1.4.2. Did you try --bind-to-core with both? If I
remember my version numbers, --bind-to-core will not be
recognized with 1.3.2, but should be with 1.4.2. Could it
be that you only tried 1.3.2?
Another option is to try "mpirun --help". Make sure that
it reports --bind-to-core.
