Intel MPI for icx

Hello,

I wonder if the new Intel LLVM Compilers will support the Intel MPI Library out of the box with the MPI wrappers (something like mpiicx). Right now oneAPI ships with MPI using classic compilers. In the documentation, I could not find information if and when there will be a transition.

Maybe you can give some information about the planned transition since we are now refactoring our code to work with the new compilers.

Best wishes

Hi,

 

Thanks for posting in Intel Communities.

 

We can specify the LLVM compiler as -{cc,cxx,fc}=<compiler> option(<compiler> = icx/icpx/dpcpp) and use it with Intel MPI code. 

Please find the below format:

mpiicc -cc=icx sample.c

mpiicpc -cxx=icpx sample.cpp

mpiicpc -cxx=dpcpp sample.cpp 

 

For more details, please find the below link for compilation command options of Intel MPI code using LLVM compilers.

Thanks & Regards,

Dear Varsha,

thank you very much for your answer. This works for us.

Nevertheless is there something like mpiicx planned? I think it is a bit confusing to use it this way because mpiicc suggests that the classic compiler is used, but one overrides it by setting the actual compiler driver. But maybe I am a bit too conservative on the naming here.

Thank Varsha and nka.

And for newbie here:

the mpi version is still 2021.9.0, which is earlier than the icx and icpx. We can create our "own" mpi executables.

 

cp -a mpiicc mpiicx

and `vim mpiicx`, modify the line 118 to CC="icx"

cp -a mpiicpc mpiicpx

CXX="icpx"
