-mcmodel=large -shared -intel and "Segmentation Fault"

-mcmodel=large -shared -intel and "Segmentation Fault"

Dear All,

I used "-mcmodel=large -shared -intel" to enable large array memory allocation and code did compiled. but when I tried to run it it gave me the "Segmentation Fault Error."

I am using gcc compiler.

Before using "-mcmodel=large -shared -intel" I was getting following error,

When I used "gcc -mcmodel=large -shared -intel" There was no error in compilation but when I run ./a.out
It gave me error"Segmentation Fault"


Below are the arrays I am using in my code.


Thank you.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Make sure the 1 option "-shared-intel" is one option. This post makes it look like you used 2 options "-shared" and "-intel". It should be "-shared-intel".

Roughly, your arrays require 3.9GB of storage. So your server has over 4GB of RAM, correct? Maybe 6GB would be sufficient, but greater than 6GB would be better.

Read through this article: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/determining-root-cause-of-sigsegv-or-sigbus-errors/

Then if -heap-arrays doesn't help, compile and linke with -g -traceback.

If you are mixing ifort and gcc code, make sure gcc is using -m64. You are NOT also linking gfortran code are you?


Thank you Ronald,

"-shared-intel" is not working if I use both seperat then it works and yes I am using linking gfortran code. And I am running my code on cluster with 8gb RAM.


-shared-intel works with newer versions of ifort. Older versions used -i-shared option. What version of the compiler are you using?

Also, some versions of 64bit Linux limit static data to 2GB no matter what you do with the compiler. Not all distributions, but some. Windows x64 also limits static data to 2GB. I would suggest considering making that data allocatable rather than static arrays like you showed from your code. There are no limits on data that is allocated, well, your limit is your physical ram + swap space.


I am using 11.0 verson, and I have to run gfortran instead of ifort. Can I pass the same command for gfortran, I mean "-shared-intel".

Thanks Ronald..

Thanks Ronald,

It worked as I compile with ifort.....
