Intel MPI

Versions Installed

Fionn: 4.1.1

Stoney: 4.0.3


Intel MPI is an implementation of the Message-Passing Interface 2 (MPI2) exploiting the Infiniband network of the machine. This is the recommended MPI implementation on Fionn, whereas the MVAPICH2 MPI package should be preferred on Stoney.





Additional Notes

Access to the library is granted using the global Intel module, also comprising the Intel compilers and MKL library (on Fionn). To load it, just use:

module load dev intel/2013-sp1

In addition, the package provides some convenient wrappers for compiling and linking MPI codes, which names are as follow:

  Intel Compilers GNU compilers
C mpiicc mpicc
C++ mpiicpc mpicxx
Fortran 77 mpiifort mpif77
Fortran 90 mpiifort mpif90
Intel MPI compilers wrapper names on Fionn.

On Stoney, depending on whether the Intel compilers or the GNU compilers are targeted, loading the module is as follow:

module load intel-mpi
module load intel-mpi-gnu
