Error: A license for CCompL could not be obtained

I am revisiting code that I wrote on the Manycore Testing Lab a few months ago and am no longer able to compile it. The error I am getting is as follows:

Qualification for obtaining the access to the many core testing lab

Hi, I have applied for an access to the many core testing about a month ago . I still do not received a response from Intel . How long generally do someone has to wait for a confirmation . And whom should I mail to see whether I have the qualification to recieve an access . My semester presentation is due next month and it would be beneficial if I could have the lab facilities at hand .

Thanks/

Cilkplus on MTL

I am trying to run a simple cilk plus program on MTL. The program runs both a serial (non-threaded) and a parallel (using cilk_spawn) version of the same code and reports the timing results for both versions.

I can compile it and run it on the login node, but it shows no speedup in the parallel version because it does not have access to multiple CPUs.

When I try to submit the job using qsub (hoping to get access to multiple cores), I get the following output file:

Help: with 40 threads, duration of workload jumps to 100x of serial with gcc

From one of our users:
I have a time loop, and inside of it several loops working on several arrays. Say the sequential time for a given size and number of iterations is ~80 seconds. Then with 2 threads is a little more than 40 seconds, and so on. The speedup varies with the size of the problem (cache issues) but that's not the point.

The trouble is, with 40 threads or so, the time jumps to ~8999 seconds. The results are still correct (by correct I mean equal to the sequential version).
