mpd problems

mpd problems

Hi all,

I'm using Intel-MPI 3.2.011 on a cluster with 9 nodes and 36 cpus and a master node with 2 cpus. Ethernet interconnects all nodes.

The mpdboot commands on master:

/opt/intel/impi/ --ncpus=2 -e -d &

/opt/intel/impi/ --rsh=/usr/bin/ssh --totalnum=10 -1 --file=$HOME//machines.LINUX --verbose --ncpus=2 &b

bring out on nodes the daemon:

[root@sissi0 ~]# ps aux | grep mpd
giorgio 3141 0.0 0.1 156704 5632 ? S 11:32 0:00 python /opt/intel/impi/3.2/bin64/ -h sissi2 -p 40057 --ifhn= --ncpus=4 --myhost=sissi0 --myip= -e -d -s 10

On master node I got the following:

LAUNCHED mpd on sissi.xxxx.xx via
RUNNING: mpd on sissi.xxxx.xx
LAUNCHED mpd on sissi8 via sissi.xxxx.xx
LAUNCHED mpd on sissi1 via sissi.xxxx.xx
LAUNCHED mpd on sissi2 via
LAUNCHED mpd on sissi3 via
RUNNING: mpd on sissi8

LAUNCHED mpd on sissi0 via sissi8
LAUNCHED mpd on sissi4 via sissi8
LAUNCHED mpd on sissi5 via sissi8
RUNNING: mpd on sissi1
LAUNCHED mpd on sissi6 via sissi8
RUNNING: mpd on sissi3
LAUNCHED mpd on sissi7 via sissi3
RUNNING: mpd on sissi5
RUNNING: mpd on sissi0
RUNNING: mpd on sissi4
RUNNING: mpd on sissi7
RUNNING: mpd on sissi6 (handle_mpd_output 752): from mpd on sissi0, invalid port info:
sissi0: Connection refused

Can someone help me out to resolve this issue?

It is dificult to determine a reason of such issue without having mpd.log files. I would suggest you submit an issue report at

Best regards,



I have a corrupted MPD on my machine. Whenever I call any of the commands "mpdtrace" or "mpdallexit" I get the following message:

mpdroot: cannot connect to local mpd at: /tmp/mpd2.console_root
probable cause: no mpd daemon on this machine
possible cause: unix socket /tmp/mpd2.console_root has been removed
mpdtrace (__init__ 1524): forked process failed; status=255

I have my mpd running:

ps -ef | grep mpd

Note: I am running on my own machine! Single Node, Quad core (intel i7 core)

Any helps would be appreciated.
