In the High Performance Computing (HPC) area, parallel computing techniques such as MPI, OpenMP*, one-sided communications, shmem, and Fortran coarray are widely utilized. This blog is part of a series that will introduce the use of these techniques, especially how to use them on the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. This first blog discusses the main usage of the hybrid MPI/OpenMP model.
When running a hybrid Intel MPI/threaded program on a Xeon Phi™ coprocessor (either in native or symmetric mode), thread placement is just as important (if not more so) as on a standard Xeon" processor.
A guide for getting started combining MPI and OpenMP in one program. Code samples are included.
