A problem about Linpack test on WCCS2003


  • Hello, Everybody, I built a cluster with WCCS2003 , on which I am doing Linpack test. But there is a problem haunted me for a long time. My cluster has 3 nodes,  each node owns 4 Intel Xeon Dual Core processors and 16G RAM. Using the HPL.DAT below, I  did  Linpack tests successfully on every single node. However, after I only modified the Ps*Qs (e.g. 1*24 or 4*6) and assigned this task to 3 nodes,  the computing time was much longer than that on a single node.
    What's more, when I executed "mpipingpong.exe" on 3 nodes, I found that the cpu usage of all nodes kept 100% for several hours but I still did not get the result of pingpong test.  I do not know to solve this problem and wish your help.
    Does anybody meet the problem as mine ?
