Hello everyone,

I'm running the atmosphere model using MPI+OMP. The mesh resolution is 60 km. The run succeeded using only MPI, while failed using MPI+OMP. Since I submitted my job using nohup, followed are contents of the nohup log file (see also the attachment run_atmosphere.log).

nohup: ignoring input

I used 20 MPI tasks with each having 2 threads to run the atmosphere model. Followed is my job submission script (see also the attachment run_atmosphere):

ulimit -s unlimited
mpirun -n 20 -machinefile hostfile ./atmosphere_model

The atmosphere model was installed supporting OpenMP using command "make ifort CORE=atmosphere USE_PIO2=true DEBUG=true OPENMP=true". I used Intel 2020 basic compiler (ifort, icc and icpc) and mvapich MPI compiler (mpif90, mpicc, mpicxx) to compile the model. The mvapich and other MPAS libruary source codes were downloaded from the site (

The input data I used is CFSR:2010-10-23_00, which is the Sample real-data input file provided by the MPAS website Please find log.atmosphere.0000.out, streams.atmosphere and namelist.atmosphere files in the attached. I also attached the namelist.init_atmosphere files and streams.init_atmosphere files for both static data interpolation and initial condition interpolation.

Thank you in advance!
