mpirun killed

Postby Keitel » Sun Feb 28, 2010 8:17 am

Hi Abinitiers,

I was doing a job and before it finished the .log file had the following:

mpirun noticed that process rank 0 with PID 6735 on node UNI.PC15 exited on signal 9 (Killed)

Where UNI.PC15 is my machine.

I used openmpi 1.4 in a core2duo machine, with 3 Gb of RAM (I don't know if this is important now).
My abinit version is the 5.8.4p version.
I noticed the above problem in other machine with the same features.

Please, I really appreciate any suggestion.

If your job received a KILL signal (#9), it probably comes from the batch system on these machines. Your job needed more resources than what you asked for, or more than is available on the machine (memory, walltime, ...). In such a case, this has nothing to do with MPI or Abinit, and you should ask your system administrator.
