problems on slurm cluster

Asked by Carsten Bittrich on 2018-09-21

Hi,

I'm currently experiencing problems when trying to produce a gridpack on a local slurm cluster, which looks like the banner file wasn't produced propoerly. The error is raised when the script tries to access the self["init"] of the banner file which apparently here doesn't exist. See the full traceback below.

As I experienced madgraph problems before when running in cluster mode which I assume might be caused by timing/synchronisation/IO-limitation problems, I'd be interested in any recommendations on how to set up the cluster environment best. The cluster uses slurm and I could easily request ~1000 cores if possible/reasonable. Would you recommend to restrict to a smaller number of nodes anyway to circumvent problems? Should one set $TMPDIR, if so should the individual jobs use the same $TMPDIR or is faster machine-local storage preferable? I also found an option cluster_temp_path, but I'm not quite sure if and how to set it.

Any help would be very much appreciated! Please let me know if any further information or tests would be necessary.

Thanks,
Carsten

HI,

This does not seem to be a SLURm related issue.
Did you try to run this without using slurm (if this is too long, just run the 0j multiplicity)
I have try on my machine (with 2.6.2) but did not reproduce such error locally.
Now this kind of remember me a similar bug report so if this is the case, you should reproduce that locally.

Cheers,

Olivier

The error is raised when the script tries to access the self["init"] of the banner file which apparently here doesn't exist. See the full traceback below.

The cluster uses slurm and I could easily request ~1000 cores if possible/reasonable. Would you recommend to restrict to a smaller number of nodes anyway to circumvent problems? Should one set $TMPDIR, if so should the individual jobs use the same $TMPDIR or is faster machine-local storage preferable? I also found an option cluster_temp_path, but I'm not quite sure if and how to set it.
