[slurm-users] MPI Spawn with IntelMPI and multiple nodes

Hi folks,

I am trying (unsuccessfully) to use MPI Spawn with IntelMPI and Slurm over multiple nodes. A single node works OK using mpiexec.hydra:

mpiexec.hydra -n 1 python ./script_here.py

My MPI is a task farm essentially based on - https://github.com/jbornschein/mpi4py-examples/blob/master/10-task-pull-spawn.py. The full code is at - https://github.com/gprMax/gprMax/blob/master/gprMax/gprMax.py#L323

I have also tried using srun but it does not spawn the correct number of tasks.

Any advice on routes to solve the problem would be most welcome!

My full submit script:


#SBATCH --account=****
#SBATCH --nodes=2
#SBATCH --ntasks=48
#SBATCH --cpus-per-task=1
#SBATCH --output=gprmax_mpi_cpu_2nodes-out.%j
#SBATCH --error=gprmax_mpi_cpu_2nodes-err.%j
#SBATCH --time=00:05:00
#SBATCH --partition=devel

module --force purge
module use /usr/local/software/jureca/OtherStages
module load Stages/2018b
module load Intel IntelMPI

cd /p/project/****/****/gprMax
source activate gprMax

mpiexec.hydra -n 1 python -m gprMax user_models/cylinder_Bscan_2D.in -n 47 -mpi 48

Kind regards,
