Problem with inv_ONERAM6 parallel calculation
Hi to everyone,
I have a strange problem with the oneram6 parallel calculation:
when te python script is started (with 6 cpu) all seems to work fine,
i've got no errors and the calculation arrives at convergence but looking at the system monitor during the calculation i see that only 1 core of the 6 is working. Can anyone explain this?:confused:
My system is a linux machine running Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit and the cpu is an
Intel CORE i7 3930k.
For more details there is a log of the terminal.
Thanks in advance.
It seems to me that SU2 is working properly in your computer, could you please just check that you speed up the code when increasing the number of cores? e.g. 2 cores is twice faster than 1.
Anyway, my recommendation is to use the latest version of the code that you can find in https://github.com/su2code . We have improved a lot the parallelization in the current SU2 version.
Thank you for your reply.
As your suggestion i have tried to run calculation with 1 core and 2 core, with python script and launching manually mpirun processes:
- with python script with 1 core the simulation reaches 195 iter in 10 minutes and with 2 cores in 12 minutes!!:eek:
- launching mpirun manually the time is 5 minutes.
In all cases the postprocessing indicates the correctness of the simulations.
I use python 2.7 and mpich2 1.5. However i'll try install the latest version of the code.
I've made a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.10, installing mpich2 via apt get.
Now all work fine!:)
I am having trouble with the parallel compilation. I tried with 2 versions of openmpi but it does not work.
Could you please tell me how you did to compile with mpich2 since in the configure options (see the example below), you need to get the path to "mpicxx" and I have not found this file for mpich2.
./configure --prefix=/path/to/install/SU2 --with-CGNS-lib=/path/to/CGNS/lib --with-CGNS-include=/path/to/CGNS/headers --with-Metis-lib=/path/to/METIS/lib --with-Metis-include=/path/to/METIS/headers --with-Metis-version=5 --with-MPI=/path/to/mpicxx
Thank you in advance for your answer
if you are using Ubuntu, as in my case, you can install mpich2 via command
sudo apt-get install mpich2. After that you can find the mpicxx command in /usr/bin
directory. So the variable for mpi will be "--with-MPI=/usr/bin/mpicxx".
This is my command line for configure on Ubuntu 12.10:
sudo ./configure --prefix=/home/leo/sci_soft/SU2_RUN --with-CGNS-lib=/usr/local/lib --with-CGNS-include=/usr/local/include --with-Metis-lib=/home/leo/sci_soft/metis-4.0.3 --with-Metis-include=/home/leo/sci_soft/metis-4.0.3/Lib --with-Metis-version=4 --with-MPI=/usr/bin/mpicxx
I hope this will be useful for you.
NOTE: I've downgrade to 12.10 from 13.10 for Nvidia-CUDA compatibility problems.
Thank you for your answer. The problem is that it seems to work but it does not really, since when I perform a parallel computation, it takes the same time per iteration if I do it on 2 cores or on 4 cores. In fact, when I launch a parallel computation on 4 cores, it seems to do 4 times the same thing... And I don't know if it comes from the open mpi / mpich2 or from the metis library...
I need to do some checks because I'm not sure that it really uses "mpich2" with "/usr/bin/mpicxx" or if it uses open mpi (since both are installed on my computer)
Thank you for your help
