Where there's a problem there's a solution

  • Error message: fluent_mpi.6.3.26: Rank 0:0: MPI_Init: ibv_create_qp() failed
    fluent_mpi.6.3.26: Rank 0:0: MPI_Init: Can't initialize RDMA device

  • On some operating systems the default amount of physical memory that can be pinned/locked by a user application is set to a low value and must be explicitly increased. A value recommended by Intel is 90% of the physical memory. Therefore, for a system with 8 GB of memory the following should be added to the /etc/security/limits.conf file on all machines in the cluster:

    soft memlock 7500000
    hard memlock 7500000

    The computer must be re-booted after making this change
