On my workstation there are 128 logic core. I can monitor them in task manager. I run mpiexec -n 128 "executable program"
But I see the OS only use 64 cores and ultility rate about 64% in task manager. The OS is windows 2016 server 64bit.
Are there some system configuration and options to limit CPU core usage?
Any information from you is helpful for me. Thanks.
Thanks for reaching out to us!
Could you please confirm how you have concluded that only 64 cores are getting utilized out of 128? did you check in the resource monitor?
However, you can check which ranks/processes are mapped to which logical cores in the terminal by setting below the environmental variable.
Also, please share the terminal output after setting the above variable.
Thanks & Regards
