#630 new defect

Some processor number combinations don't work on Kraken

Reported by: Ian Hinder Owned by: Erik Schnetter
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: SimFactory Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Submitting on Kraken with;

sim --remote kraken create-submit maxwell_1proc --testsuite --procs 6 --num-threads 6 --walltime 4:00:00

leads to an error from aprun along the lines of -n cannot exceed -N (sorry, I deleted the error message). The idea was to get one MPI process with 6 threads. This same simfactory submission command works on Datura. The workaround is to use additionally --ppn-used=6. Is there some documentation for what each of these command line options precisely does?

Simfactory outputs how many nodes, processes, threads etc. it requests. Look for "Job allocation information" in the output. What did it say?

Erik wrote documentation for each of these concepts. It's now in the user guide. See doc/userguide/processterminology.rst or
