OpenMPI 2.0.1

The Open MPI Project is an open source Message Passing Interface implementation that is developed and maintained by a consortium of academic, research, and industry partners. Open MPI is therefore able to combine the expertise, technologies, and resources from all across the High Performance Computing community in order to build the best MPI library available. Open MPI offers advantages for system and software vendors, application developers and computer science researchers.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

GCC-based:
$ module load apps/openmpi/2.0.1

Intel-based:
$ module load apps/openmpi/2.0.1-intel-2017.1.132

Example: OpenMPI Job

An example can be found at ${BB_EXAMPLES}/OpenMPI/2.0.1/sbatch.sh. The example can be copied to a test directory and submitted to the batch system using sbatch.

$ cp -r ${BB_EXAMPLES}/OpenMPI/2.0.1 ~/openmpi-2.0.1-test
$ cd ~/openmpi-2.0.1-test

Edit the sbatch.sh script according to your needs, then do:

$ sbatch sbatch.sh

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

Previous versions of this application are recorded below:
