Intel MKL ERROR: Parameter 4 was incorrect on entry to DSTEIN2

Hi,

   Some users are seeing the following error messages when running VASP, built against Intel 2018.0.3.

Intel MKL ERROR: Parameter 4 was incorrect on entry to DSTEIN2.
Intel MKL ERROR: Parameter 6 was incorrect on entry to DSTEIN2

The behavior was noticed as the rank count increased, and https://www.mail-archive.com/wien@zeus.theochem.tuwien.ac.at/msg17897.html also suggests that this behavior might be expected as rank count exceeds some level.

Is this expected behavior from MKL, and if so, what is the guidance on MPI rank count vs. matrix property (size?)?

Thanks

Yes, we know this. This problem has been fixed since MKL 2019.0. Could you please try to check this version or the latest 2019.1 one and let us know the results.

OK, thanks Gennady. I will work to get 2019.1 up and update when I can.

Thanks Gennady, MKL 2019.1 appears to have fixed the issue.

Hello,

 

I can't change the MKL version to the 2019 one. So if I were to keep working with an old MKL version, could you please tell me what causes this error with VASP? Thanks.
