Intel-MPI 2021.8 / Mellanox IB: tuning file not found - Which impact on computations?

Hello all,

We are preparing a switch from Intel-MPI 2018 to version 2021.* (currently tested: 2021.8), for use in conjunction with Mellanox Infiniband interconnect.

Although our testcases are running well, mpirun would display the following message at startup:

 

[0#36769:36769@plgrocalv905] MPI startup(): File "/test/mpi/intel-2021.8.0/mpi/2021.8.0/etc/tuning_skx_shm-ofi_mlx_56.dat" not found
[0#36769:36769@plgrocalv905] MPI startup(): Load tuning file: "/test/mpi/intel-2021.8.0/mpi/2021.8.0/etc/tuning_skx_shm-ofi.dat"

 

I assume this is linked to Infinibandsupport - Do you have any idea which incidence this warning might have on the computations?

As it does not look to be part of standard Intel-MPI packaging, does  Intel otherwise maintain any "tuning_skx_shm-ofi_mlx*.dat" file or should this be checked with IB vendor?

Thanks!
