This chapter covers the Intel® Composer XE for Linux suite support for Intel® MPI.
The Intel® Composer XE 2013 for Linux suite is compatible with the Intel® MPI library for Intel Architecture including the Intel® Xeon® Phi™ coprocessor . The Message Passing Interface (MPI) is one of many options available for you to parallelize your application (if it is not already using MPI. MPI is a popular form of distributed memory parallelism such as clusters. We do not cover details on MPI use on Intel® Xeon® Phi™ coprocessors in this document. This information is covered in separate documents. We simply provide references here to external documentation.
Using Intel® MPI with the Intel Compilers
Support for Intel® MPI is evolving in 2012 and 2013. The latest information on MPI support is available in the articles: Using the Intel® MPI Library on Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor Systems and Intel® Cluster Tools and the Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors.

The Intel® Composer XE 2013 SP1 for Linux suite is compatible with Intel® MPI. Information on using MPI applications with the Intel compiler is covered outside of this compiler documentation.
It is essential that you read this guide from start to finish using the built-in hyperlinks to guide you along a path to a successful port and tuning of your application(s) on Intel® Xeon® Phi™ architecture. The paths provided in this guide reflect the steps necessary to get best application performance on Xeon Phi architecture.
