Error mesage when running Intel® Optimized LINPACK Benchmark for Linux* OS on Intel Phi cards.



I am trying Intel® Optimized LINPACK Benchmark for Linux* OS on Multi-Intel Phi cards configuration.



My test environment :

  1. AIC Sandy Bridge EP-4S server system with Sandy Bridge EP-4S *4 + 98GB memory
  2. Intel Xeon Phi : 3 pcs of 3110 and 4 pcs of 3115
  3. OS: Redhat Enterprise Linux 6.2 x64
  4. Xeon Phi MPSS: KNC_gold_update_2-2.1.5889-16-rhel-6.2.tar
  5. Intel Composer XE : l_ccompxe_2013.3.163.tgz
  6. Intel MPI : l_mpi_p_4.1.0.024.tgz or l_mpi_p_4.1.0.030.tgz

After ran the runme_xeon64_ao script to enables acceleration by offloading computations to Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors available on the system, I found that when I increase the HPL problem size(Ns) to a arrange, Linpack process(xlinpack_xeon64) will run endlessly and can’t be finished and found some relevant error message in host system log . For example, at 7 pcs Phi configuration, I got this problem when I set HPL problem size(Ns) to 46000. It related to Phi card quantity. At 1 pcs Phi configuration, I can increase HPL problem size(Ns) to 100000 without problem.


The below is error message:

   Could you please indicate which binary you are running?  There are multiple binaries for different sorts of configurations, all of which are LINPACK in one form or another.
