MPI Job

Introduction

MPI jobs on the Grid are slightly different. They will run on only one site and you can request a number of nodes per job. On the lifescience Grid the clusters have 16 nodes. When you request more nodes, your job can only run on larger clusters. Currently that will be the cluster in Groningen and Gina. There are several flavors of MPI available, however MPICH and OpenMPI are the most common on the Grid.

To request four cpu's for an MPICH job, add: JobType= 'MPICH' and NodeNumber = 4 in the jdl-file.

Submission

The three files from the Example below, you can submit with:

user$ startGridSession lsgrid
user$ glite-wms-job-submit -d $USER -o myjobs test-mpi.jdl

And the usual commands to check status, retreive output and possibly cancel your job.

user$ glite-wms-job-status -i myjobs
user$ glite-wms-job-output --dir ./my_ouput -i myjobs
user$ glite-wms-job-cancel -i myjobs 

Example files

test-mpi.jdl

Type = "Job";
JobType = "MPICH";
NodeNumber = 4;
Executable = "test-mpi.sh";
Arguments = "test-mpi";
StdOutput = "test-mpi.out";
StdError = "test-mpi.err";
InputSandbox = {"test-mpi.sh","test-mpi.c"};
OutputSandbox = {"test-mpi.err","test-mpi.out","mpiexec.out"};
Requirements = Member("MPICH", other.GlueHostApplicationSoftwareRunTimeEnvironment);
