Running Instructions

On Grex, MVAPICH2 is available using environment modules. It is not the default MPI (which is OpenMPI) so it is recommended to issue "module purge" command before loading MVAPICH modules. Note that for GCC compilers, there are several builds of MVAPICH2, and it is necessary to load the desired version of GCC (4.6, 4.7) first so that the MVAPICH2 module would detect it.
