Build CP2K using Intel Fortran compiler Professional Edition

Introduction : 

CP2K (http://cp2k.berlios.de/) is a freely available (GPL) program, written in Fortran, to perform atomistic and molecular simulations of solid state, liquid, molecular and biological systems. It provides a general framework for different methods such as e.g. density functional theory (DFT) using a mixed Gaussian and plane waves approach (GPW), and classical pair and many-body potentials.

Version :

Prerequisites :

CP2K requires that you already have installed the Fortran compiler, math library with FFTW 2.x/3.x support.  We suggest using both Intel Fortran compiler and Intel Math Kernel Library for better performance.

Building the Application :

Here we show the detail on how to build the CP2K source with Intel Fortran Compiler for Intel 64 platform.

Part I. Intel Fortran Composer XE 2011


1) Download and install Intel Fortran Composer XE 2011 (first release version 2011.0.084).
Make sure you select to install both Intel Fortran compiler and Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL).  The default installation directory is /opt/intel/composerxe-2011/ .

2) Build FFTW version 3.x wrappers library for Intel MKL Library
From Intel MKL version 10.2 and later, FFTW3 interface for Intel Fortran compiler is pre-built and ntegrated in Intel MKL core libraries.  See /en-us/articles/intel-mkl-main-libraries-contain-fftw3-interfaces

Source code is still available to create wrappers for use with other compilers.  Here is example to build Fortran version by gnu compiler.

] cd /opt/intel/composerxe-2011/mkl/interfaces/fftw3xf

] make libintel64 compiler=gnu

3) Untar the CP2K.tar.gz, and modify configuration file “Linux-x86-64-intel.sopt” in cp2k/arch directory, which is targeting for Intel 64 platform.

Here is an example of Linux-x86-64-intel.sopt for reference:

INTEL_MKL = /opt/intel/composerxe-2011/mkl
INTEL_INC = $(INTEL_MKL)/include/fftw
INTEL_LIB = $(INTEL_MKL)/lib/intel64

LIBINT_PATH = /usr/lib/libint-1.1.4
LIBINT_LIB  = $(LIBINT_PATH)/lib/libderiv.a $(LIBINT_PATH)/lib/libint.a -lstdc++

FC = ifort
LD = ifort
AR = xiar -r

DFLAGS = -D__INTEL -D__FFTSG -D__FFTW3 -D__FFTMKL -D__LIBINT
CPPFLAGS = -C -traditional $(DFLAGS) -I$(INTEL_INC)
FCFLAGS = $(DFLAGS) -I$(INTEL_INC) -O2 -xHost -heap-arrays 64 -fpp -free
LDFLAGS = $(FCFLAGS)

#LIBS = -mkl
LIBS = -L$(INTEL_LIB) -mkl  $(LIBINT_LIB)

OBJECTS_ARCHITECTURE = machine_intel.o
Notice: The options (-O2 -xHost) are available for both Intel® and non-Intel microprocessors but it may result in more optimizations for Intel microprocessors than for non-Intel microprocessors.


4) Setup the environment of Intel Fortran compiler, then build CP2K source:

] source /opt/intel/composerxe-2011/bin/compilervars.sh intel64

] cd cp2k/makefiles/

] make ARCH=Linux-x86-64-intel VERSION=sopt


Part II. Intel Fortran Compiler Professional Edition (version 11.0 / 11.1)

Please follow the steps listing below:.

1) Download and install Intel Fortran compiler Professional Edition version.
Make sure you select to install both Intel Fortran compiler and Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL). For example, the default installation directory is under /opt/intel/Compiler/11.0/083 or /opt/intel/Compiler/11.1/072.

2) Build FFTW version 3.x wrappers library for Intel MKL Library

Note: Please skip this step if you are using Intel Fortran compiler version 11.1, or Intel MKL libraries version 10.2 and later.

The source code for the wrappers and makefiles with the wrapper list files for Fortran are located in the /interfaces/fftw3xf sub-directories in the Intel MKL directory. Please use Intel C++ compiler (or GCC) to generate the wrappers library (libffw3xf_intel.a, or libfftw3xf_gnu.a):

] cd /opt/intel/Compiler/11.0/083/mkl/interfaces/fftw3xf

] make libem64t compiler=intel (or make libem64t compiler=gnu)

3) Untar the CP2K.tar.gz, and modify configuration file “Linux-x86-64-intel.sopt” in cp2k/arch directory, which is targeting for Intel 64 platform.

Here is an example of Linux-x86-64-intel.sopt for reference:

INTEL_MKL = /opt/intel/Compiler/11.0/083/mkl
INTEL_INC = $(INTEL_MKL)/include/fftw
INTEL_LIB = $(INTEL_MKL)/lib/em64t

FC = ifort
LD = ifort
AR = xiar -r

DFLAGS = -D__INTEL -D__FFTSG -D__FFTW3 -D__FFTMKL
CPPFLAGS = -C -traditional $(DFLAGS) -I$(INTEL_INC)
FCFLAGS = $(DFLAGS) -I$(INTEL_INC) -O2 -xHost -heap-arrays 64 -fpp -free
LDFLAGS = $(FCFLAGS)

# If you are using ifort verison 11.1 with MKL version 10.2 and later, Intel MKL libraries and FFTW interfaces will be linked automatically with -mkl option
# LIBS = -L$(INTEL_LIB) -mkl

LIBS = -L$(INTEL_LIB) -lfftw3xf_intel -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_sequential -lmkl_core

OBJECTS_ARCHITECTURE = machine_intel.o
Notice: The options (-O2 -xHost) are available for both Intel® and non-Intel microprocessors but it may result in more optimizations for Intel microprocessors than for non-Intel microprocessors.


4) Setup the environment of Intel Fortran compiler, then build CP2K source:

] source /opt/intel/Compiler/11.0/083/bin/ifortvars.sh intel64

] cd cp2k/makefiles/

] make ARCH=Linux-x86-64-intel VERSION=sopt


Running the Application :

CP2K provide several test cases, which can be used for stability testing and verify the results to see if the compilation is correct.

] cd cp2k/tests/QS

] ./../../exe/Linux-x86-64-intel/cp2k.sopt H2O-32.inp

] ./../../exe/Linux-x86-64-intel/cp2k.sopt H2O-3x3.inp


Known Issues or Limitations :

1) For CP2K version 2.1 branch

We recommended to use Intel Fortran Compiler version 11.1 update 6 (version 11.1.072) or later version.

If you want to use new Intel Fortran Composer XE 2011 (aka version 12.0), we suggest that one source file "qs_vxc_atom.F" should be compiled with -O1 option only.  You could add the following lines into Linux-x86-64-intel.sopt to avoid this problem:

FCFLAGS2 = -I$(INTEL_INC) -O1 -xHost -heap-arrays 64 -fpp -free $(DFLAGS)

qs_vxc_atom.o: qs_vxc_atom.F
$(FC) -c $(FCFLAGS2) $<

2) For CP2K version 2.2 branch

Suggested to use the Intel Fortran compiler 11.1 update 6 and later version. 

There are some known issues with new Composer XE 2011 (ifort version 12.x.xxx).  Please use the XE 2011 update 8 and future version,  also apply the following patches in configuration file "Linux-x86-64-intel.sopt":

FCFLAGS2 = -I$(INTEL_INC) -O1 -xHost -heap-arrays 64 -fpp -free $(DFLAGS)

et_coupling.o: et_coupling.F
$(FC) -c $(FCFLAGS2) $<

qs_vxc_atom.o: qs_vxc_atom.F
$(FC) -c $(FCFLAGS2) $<
