Hi,
I was trying to use intel APS tool, as - 
mpirun -np X -ppn Y aps -c mpi ./application.exe

and i came across following observation - 

Messagesize(B) Volume(MB) Volume(%) Transfers Time(sec) Time(%)
589824 1.71E+08 26.79 290070590 220680.08 18.12
35512 860687.7 0.13 24236532 19085.79 1.57
37056 899539 0.14 24275124 19037.67 1.56
38600 904379.9 0.14 23429532 18470.59 1.52

.....


as per this report, the 290070590x transfers of the 589824 message size data took 220680.08 seconds (= ~61 hours ) but the application finished normally in ~3 hours.
(and there are more messages sizes  in the report ~600 lines)

this was a run of an application with 4 process per node (10 threads per process) on 128 nodes.


Is this report incorrect or i am interpreting this incorrectly?
