No traceback with for Intel Fortran code


I am running a large Fortran code compiled with Intel Fortran and linked to Intel MPI 2019 update 7. I include the -traceback option in the compilation, along with -static-intel -m64 -O2 -ipo -mt_mpi. The job I run uses only one OpenMP thread and 12 MPI processes. After several days of running, the execution freezes because one MPI process hits a seg fault and the other processes hang. I am trying to figure out where the seg fault is occurring. The traceback is:

forrtl: severe (174): SIGSEGV, segmentation fault occurred

srun: error: burn001: task 4: Exited with exit code 174

What do I need to do to get a line number?

for any Fortran code traceback you need -g along with -traceback

and yes you can use -g -O2 together with -traceback

you need to link with ifort or mpiifort as well with -g -traceback. 

That should get you the fortran portion of the stacks USUALLY.  There are cases where the stack gets corrupted and in those cases you won't get line numbers on the traceback.


Well, traceback option is to show a traceback information in case of crash. It was printed in your case.

The additional debug information (symbols and line numbers) is generated by the compiler with -g.

Note that you need to explicitly set the optimization level with -g (-g -O2), otherwise the optimization is disabled with -g.
