APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When running test cases in 32 bit mode that make use of large
    OpenMP thread counts, the resulting binary produces one of the
    following issues:
    
    * Illegal instructions
    * Segmentation violations
    * Internal errors reported by MPI
       (e.g. ERROR: 0032-117 User pack or receive buffer is too
    small  (22960) in MPI_Recv )
    * Internal errors reported by the application.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    Users who have test cases that make use of large OpenMP thread
    counts are potentially affected by this issue.
    
    Problem Description:
    The internal implementation of certain OpenMP tasks were missing
    a lock and was optimized incorrectly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The OpemMP has been fixed.
