Using Intel® Cluster Checker Global Configuration Options

Intel® Cluster Checker is highly configurable (see the Module Reference Guide for details).  Some configuration options are common to several test modules, such as the base installation path of the Intel® MPI Library.  Each test module may be configured separately, or if value of the configuration option is shared, the value may be set globally using the global configuration capability.  To use this capability, place the shared configuration options inside the <global_configuration> tag at the beginning of the configuration file. 

The following example shows how to specify the base path of the Intel® MPI Library first using the standard configuration options, and then using the global configuration option.

Using standard configuration options:

<test>
<imb_collective_intel_mpi>
<benchmark>barrier</benchmark>
<fabric>
<device>sock</device>
</fabric>
<mpi-path>/opt/intel/impi/3.2</mpi-path>
</imb_collective_intel_mpi>

<imb_pingpong_intel_mpi>
<fabric>
<bandwidth>110</bandwidth>
<device>sock</device>
<latency>35</latency>
</fabric>
<mpi-path>/opt/intel/impi/3.2</mpi-path>
</imb_pingpong_intel_mpi>
</test>
The equivalent configuration using the global configuration capability:
<global_configuration>
<mpi-path>/opt/intel/impi/3.2</mpi-path>
</global_configuration>

<test>
<imb_collective_intel_mpi>
<benchmark>barrier</benchmark>
<fabric>
<device>sock</device>
</fabric>
</imb_collective_intel_mpi>

<imb_pingpong_intel_mpi>
<fabric>
<bandwidth>110</bandwidth>
<device>sock</device>
<latency>35</latency>
</fabric>
</imb_pingpong_intel_mpi>
</test>
If the same configuration option is set both globally and for a specific test module, the specific setting is given precedence.

The following is a list of common configuration options that benefit from the global configuration capability:
  • cc-path - the base installation path of the Intel® C++ Compiler
  • fc-path - the base installation path of the Intel® Fortran Compiler
  • mkl-path - the base installation path of the Intel® Math Kernel Library
  • mpi-path - the base installation path of the Intel® MPI Library
