Vlabs dont have firewall restrictions BUT the machines are not exposed to the internet.

You share all machines so please be cooperative and discrete.


This is a quickstart guide of howto use this LabInstance to deploy MPI programs

HowTo use it

  • cd /home/ubuntu

git clone

  • cd examples-mpi2/examples

make all

Default Configuration

connect to workers

 ssh ubuntu@[IP]
 Info:  user has sudo privileges without a password


mpicc -o /home/ubuntu/mpi_hello_world examples/mpi_hello_world.c

run the MPI hello world program

mpirun -n 10 -f /home/ubuntu/hosts /home/ubuntu/mpi_hello_world

NOTE: copy hello world to all clients

# scp hello wrold to all clients. sudo -u mpi for auto scp connect. see /home/mpi/.ssh 
while read -r line; 
   scp /home/ubuntu/mpi_hello_world ubuntu@$line:/home/ubuntu/mpi_hello_world
