NAMD Wiki: NamdOnUCX

  You are encouraged to improve NamdWiki by adding content, correcting errors, or removing spam.

UCX is a portable API for NamdOnInfiniBand and other high-speed networks.

The Charm++ ucx layer should provide higher performance than the verbs or mpi layers.

See for compilation details.

NAMD binaries built on the Charm++ ucx layer must be launched with an mpiexec binary that uses the launch mechanism (Simple PMI, Slurm PMI, Slurm PMI 2, or OpenMPI PMIx) for which they were built.

A bug in UCX that caused NAMD and other Charm++ applications to hang is corrected in UCX version 1.9.0-rc1 and later.
