cluster.mpi.linuxgccrelease failed

Hi there,
I was clustering a silent files with my 10% lowest energy decoys and the cluster.mpi.linuxgccrelease just stopped and issued the following on screen:

mpirun noticed that process rank 4 with PID 19956 on node compute-1-5 exited on signal 9 (Killed).

Well, it seems some problem with MPIRUN rather than with the cluster.mpi.linuxgccrelease binary.
I'm running cluster.mpi.linuxgccrelease with the following command line:
mpirun -x LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LIB --mca btl_tcp_if_include eth0 -np 20 --host compute-1-11,compute-1-12,compute-1-13,compute-1-14,compute-1-15,compute-1-16,compute-1-17,compute-1-18,compute-1-19,compute-1-20 $BIN/cluster.mpi.linuxgccrelease -in:file:fullatom -in:file:silent_struct_type binary -in:file:silent ecut_10.out -cluster:radius -1

Did I miss some special MPIRUN option?
Thanks in advance.

The clustering code was never multi-processor-ized to my knowledge. I don't think it should actually fail in MPI, but it certainly won't work better than the non-MPI.

Hi smlewis,
Thanks for your replay. Judging by the output on screen, the mpi version seems to work reasonable well, but it doesn't writes the expected clusters before die. So, I thought I had missed some MPIRUN option. Well, if you don't use the mpicluster, who am I to use it? Thanks for sharing.

For some reason the process has been killed with the status "Out of memory". The same jobs was completed with the non-mpi version of cluster.default.linuxgccrelease.

This problem has been solved decreasing the number of process per worknode.
Hope it helps.
