Intel Fortran Compiler 11.1 and OpenMPI 1.4 bug - Inconsistent Output

Hi everyone,
I'm going nuts with my code, because what is happening is beyond my comprehension. When I compile my code with -g option, or -check all, or -check bounds flag, the code runs perfectly fine, though, as you can guess, very slow.

Whenever I use any optimization flag, the code fails to run, gives random segmentation faults. More importantly, the code has something of this sort:

x(1)=...
x(2)=...
.
.
.
x(64)=...
When I add WRITE(6,*) x(1) at the end, it gives me a number totally different from what I set it to. (gives me zero) x is an allocatable array which is properly allocated to be of size 64.
Here are some technical details:
I do not have Intel C/C++ compiler and therefore OpenMPI was compiled with gcc, g++ and ifort combined, with no special flags. If I use gfortran, the code runs with no problems, regardless of the optimization level.
I also tried to use MPICH2 and still the problem persists. It's not specific to OpenMPI. There is a compiler bug in Intel Compiler, or, there is an incompatibility between GCC 4.2 and ifort.

What do you think is the root of the problem?

Thanks

Hi oacikgoz,

I would not blame Intel compiler in this problem. Could you please download an evaluation copy of the Intel MPI library and give it a try. Download it from www.intel.com/go/mpi.

Pay attention that you need to use mpiifort for Intel Fortran Compiler.

Best wishes,
Dmitry

Thanks for your reply. I cannot install MPI Intel because it's not available on Mac's. I'm using a 12-core Mac Pro with Mac OS X Installed.
Any other suggestions?

oacikgoz,

If you are sure that the issue is related to Intel Fortran compiler you can submit a request via Premier porviding a reproducer.
Unfortunately we cannot help you with Mac OS because we don't even have this OS on our servers.

Best wishes,
Dmitry

I just can't believe what I see. The compiler screws up for some reason for the following code whenever I use default optimization. When I turn off optimization it works just fine... Very odd. The screen output, when I run it on 4 nodes is,

-0.999305041735772 -0.999305041735772
-1.770442141520288E-003 -0.999305041735772

-1.770442141520288E-003 -0.999305041735772
The correct output should have been

One more thing, I just realized that this has nothing to do with MPI. Commenting out MPI related lines also reproduces the same error...
