It seems that the number of threads has some effects on the
performance. Maybe some configurations issue exists in openmpi. I will
investigate more on that. Thanks guys for the tips.

You could also watch the job via top or other means (on Linux, you can press “1” to see line-by-line for each CPU core), or use strace on the process itself. Presumably something is happening that’s either eating up 4 minutes, or the job is running 4 minutes more slowly and you’ll need to figure out why. I know that our jobs run via the scheduler perform about on par for the hardware, and that jobs start fairly immediately.
