AWS, Intel mpi and efa

Im having some issues with the latest Intel mpi and efa on AWS instances.

I installed the Intel MPI from the install script found elsewhere in the support forums.

(https://software.intel.com/sites/default/files/managed/f4/92/install_impi.txt)

I grabbed the latest libfabric source and built that.

The instance already had AWS's libfabric from the efa setup install but its not in PATH/LD_LIBRARY_PATH for these tests.

[sheistan@compute-041249 ~]$ which mpiexec
/opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2019.4.243/linux/mpi/intel64/bin/mpiexec
[sheistan@compute-041249 ~]$ which fi_info
/nasa/libfabric/latest/bin/fi_info
[sheistan@compute-041249 ~]$ fi_info -p efa
provider: efa
    fabric: EFA-fe80::4c2:2aff:fec7:ce80
    domain: efa_0-rdm
    version: 2.0
    type: FI_EP_RDM
    protocol: FI_PROTO_EFA
provider: efa
    fabric: EFA-fe80::4c2:2aff:fec7:ce80
    domain: efa_0-dgrm
    version: 2.0
    type: FI_EP_DGRAM
    protocol: FI_PROTO_EFA
provider: efa;ofi_rxd
    fabric: EFA-fe80::4c2:2aff:fec7:ce80
    domain: efa_0-dgrm
    version: 1.0
    type: FI_EP_RDM
    protocol: FI_PROTO_RXD
 

when running on a single node life is good as expected:

[sheistan@compute-041249 ~]$ I_MPI_DEBUG=1 mpiexec --hostfile $PBS_NODEFILE -np 2  ./pi_efa
[0] MPI startup(): libfabric version: 1.9.0a1

[0] MPI startup(): libfabric provider: efa

compute-041249
compute-041249
  pi is approximately:  3.1415926769620652  Relative Error is:  -0.20387909E-05
 Integration Wall Time = 0.005503 Seconds on       2 Processors for n =  10000000
 

but when two nodes are involved it hangs. In this case in a mpi_barrier() call.

[sheistan@compute-041249 ~]$ I_MPI_DEBUG=1 mpiexec --hostfile $PBS_NODEFILE -np 2 -ppn 1 ./pi_efa

Thoughts on something to try or something I missed?

As a followup to this: allowing outbound traffic for all traffic to 0.0.0.0/0 is apparently not

the same as all traffic to the security group allowing the traffic.

Hi Nasa Ames,

Could you please ensure that you performed all steps from AWS/EFA guide?

And please switch to updated Intel MPI installation script.

After Intel MPI installation on each node it should be enough to perform "source /opt/intel/impi/2019.4.243/intel64/bin/mpivars.sh" to enable IMPI environment.

Update:

Intel MPI installation section was added to AWS/EFA guide.
https://docs.aws.amazon.com/en_us/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/efa-start.html#efa-start-impi
