I have read many documents about MPI and mpitune on the website,and I found there are so many differences between old and existing versions about mpitune.
In the latest version of mpitune,I know how to use the sample configuration file that is given by Intel in the directory '/opt/intel/oneapi/mpi/...tune_cfg/'.
The question is that how can I set my own configuration file to evaluate the performance of a given MPI application ?Is there a example about it? Or is this feature no longer supported?
Is there a document about this ? I am confused between new and old documents.
Thank you.Any support is appreciated.
Yes, there had been changes in mpitune usage.
We will get back to you with the exact steps on how to use mpitune.
Meanwhile, we suggest you use autotuner(Autotuning (intel.com)) which is more efficient and faster than mpitune.
We will get back with the answer for mpitune.
Sorry for the delay in response.
The results of the autotuner are not human readable.
But i will get back to you if it is possible to interpret those results.
Thanks for being patient we will get back to you soon.
I have contacted the internal team regarding the .dat file output of the autotuner. They replied that it is not supposed to be read. It is a binary file.
You can use I_MPI_TUNING_BIN_DUMP to select the particular dat to use.
Let us know if you have any other queries
A quick clarification here. The correct environment variable to specify a tuning file in binary format to be used by the Intel MPI Library runtime is I_MPI_TUNING_BIN. On the other hand, I_MPI_TUNING_BIN_DUMP is used to specify a file into which tuning data is written by Autotuner during the tuning process.
Thanks for the confirmation.
