Development, Library, MPI


The Open MPI Project is an open source Message Passing Interface implementation that is developed and maintained by a consortium of academic, research, and industry partners. Open MPI is therefore able to combine the expertise, technologies, and resources from all across the High Performance Computing community in order to build the best MPI library available.

Available versions (Euler, old software stack)

Legacy versions Supported versions New versions
1.4.5 1.6.5 1.10.0, 1.10.2, 1.10.3, 1.8.0, 2.0.0, 2.0.2

Environment modules (Euler, old software stack)

The open_mpi module is a smart module, which checks for a loaded compiler module and then loads the corresponding OpenMPI version. For the module load command example, we use the standard compiler gcc/4.8.2.
