Intel's implementation of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) library.
Availability & Restrictions
This library may be used as an alternative to - but not in conjunction with - the MVAPICH2 MPI libraries.
Simply load the module:
module load intelmpi
On Glenn, the modules are named slightly differently:
module load intel-mpi-3.2.2p-006
Since this module conflicts with MVAPICH installations, you should unload those modules first.
Using Intel MPI
Software compiled against this module will use the libraries at runtime.
Building With Intel MPI
On Glenn, we do not recommend building against these libraries. The modules are not configured to set up useful environment variables.
On Oakley, we have defined several environment variables to make it easier to build and link with the Intel MPI libraries.
||Use during your compilation step for C programs.|
||Use during your compilation step for C++ programs.|
||Use during your compilation step for Fortran programs.|
||Use during your compilation step for Fortran 90 programs.|
||Use when linking your program to Intel MPI.|
In general, for any application already set up to use
mpicc, (or similar), compilation should be fairly straightfoward.
Running a program compiled against Intel MPI (called
my-impi-application) for five-hours on Oakley:
#PBS -N MyIntelMPIJob #PBS -l nodes=4:ppn=12 #PBS -l walltime=5:00:00 module swap mvapich2 intelmpi cd $PBS_O_WORKDIR mpiexec my-impi-application
