The slides below are from my presentation at EuroMPI'13 about Open MPI's flexible process affinity interface (in OMPI 1.7.2 and later). I described this system in a prior blog entries (one, two, three), but many people keep asking me about it.
Josh Hursey from U. Wisconsin, LaCrosse, wrote this IMUDI paper about the interface (IMUDI is a sub-workshop of EuroMPI focusing on end-user issues) to get a little more publicity and awareness of this process affinity system. Specifically, we designed this affinity system so that we could get feedback from real end users about what is useful and what is not.
Here's the slides:
Give the system a try with your applications, and let us know what works well for you.
