LAM/MPI 7.0 has escaped!

The LAM Team from the Open Systems Lab at Indiana University is pleased to release LAM/MPI version 7.0. Representing over two years of development, version 7.0 includes significant new features for MPI applications programmers, parallel programming/MPI researchers, and system administrators. An abbreviated listing of these features includes: * When used with the Berkeley Lab Checkpoint/Restart (BLCR) single-node checkpointer, parallel MPI jobs can be involuntarily checkpointed and restarted. * Low-latency, high-bandwidth message passing on Myrinet networks. * Extensive run-time tuning and underlying network selection (vs. compile-time selection and tuning). * SMP-aware collectives. Based on the MagPIe algorithms, several of LAM's MPI collective functions have been optimized for use in networks of SMPs. * Integration with PBS, BProc, and Globus. LAM now uses the native job starting mechanisms of each of these environments to launch jobs in parallel. * A comprehensive User's Guide, providing a user-centric description of LAM/MPI, how to use all of its features, and how to tune MPI applications at run-time. * An extensible component architecture such that MPI researchers can write small, self-contained components that "plug-in" to LAM/MPI. * Support for the TotalView parallel debugger. More information and documentation is available at the newly-redesigned LAM/MPI web site: "http://www.lam-mpi.org/":http://www.lam-mpi.org/ Make today a LAM/MPI day!
