I know that error. It has issues with your CPU slot using 48 threads. The work unit fails with ERROR:There is no domain decomposition for 40 ranks

Workaround is to limit your CPU slot to 32 threads and create a second CPU slot with 16 threads. Or 2x cpu slots with 24 threads each.

Then this work unit will work and others coming too.

foldy, all true. Last time this happened to me was a Project: 16417 (Run 1642, Clone 2, Gen 2) a few days ago. My CPU machine is generally unattended and I lost 4 days of folding while the client hung endlessly repeating the same thing. There should be a smarter solution than to drop thread counts.

I agree, there should be, but that issue belongs to gromacs.org. It's open software and FAH uses it with very minor alterations.

the part of the issue that I'm persuing right now is why 48 was reduced to 40 before it failed. The official word from gromacs is that the number of threads must have factors of 2 or 3 only The value of 40 contains a factor of 5 which apparently is the problem, but 48 would not have that problem. I'd like an explanation. It's somehow related to PME.

I don't believe this is a GROMACS issue. The parameters FAHclient passes to mdrun results in PME being used. It allows for better utilization of high thread counts. PME could be disabled by passing -npme = 0 but would cause this problem to occur more often.

For this work unit, 48 was split into 40 PP ranks and 8 PME. The only ways to factor 40 are 8x5x1 and 4x5x2. If the work unit is small, resulting in 4 as the largest factor allowed, then it will fail. Limits on the size are recorded in md.log.
Code: Select all
The maximum allowed number of cells is: X 4 Y 4 Z 3

FAHClient needs to be smarter: detect the domain decomposition error and retry with n - 1 threads until the work unit runs to completion. The next work unit can be assigned at the full number of threads set on the slot. This new work unit might be successful or it might reduce the threads until it runs.

The the code to do that would probably need to be in FAHCoreWrapper as that handles running the FAHCore_nn process.

It could potentially go there as well or even within FahCore_a7.exe. Wherever the current logic is that outputs the following lines would be ideal:

This happens prior to calling GROMACS (mdrun) and is not mentioned in the FAH's fork. On failure, retry with nt -1, reducing further if necessary due to primes, and then call mdrun.

md.log contents follow. They show what you expected to see.
Code: Select all
Initializing Domain Decomposition on 48 ranks
Dynamic load balancing: auto
Will sort the charge groups at every domain (re)decomposition
Initial maximum inter charge-group distances:
    two-body bonded interactions: 0.406 nm, LJ-14, atoms 876 884
  multi-body bonded interactions: 0.406 nm, Proper Dih., atoms 876 884
Minimum cell size due to bonded interactions: 0.447 nm
Maximum distance for 7 constraints, at 120 deg. angles, all-trans: 1.098 nm
Estimated maximum distance required for P-LINCS: 1.098 nm
This distance will limit the DD cell size, you can override this with -rcon
Guess for relative PME load: 0.17
Will use 40 particle-particle and 8 PME only ranks
This is a guess, check the performance at the end of the log file
Using 8 separate PME ranks, as guessed by mdrun
Scaling the initial minimum size with 1/0.8 (option -dds) = 1.25
Optimizing the DD grid for 40 cells with a minimum initial size of 1.372 nm
The maximum allowed number of cells is: X 4 Y 4 Z 3

Thank you for the log. I have a 4x4x3 with PME load of 0.18 in my data set.
PME of 0.18 used 48 threads as 36 + 12 PME. 36 is factored as 4x3x3 so it stayed within the limits.

If you still have the work unit or you come across this scenario again, change the numbers of CPUs assigned to the slot.
Try each of these until it starts folding: 45, 44, 42, 40, 35, 32.
After the work unit completes you can set it back to 48 CPUs.

Edit: I now have data for p14576.

_r2w_ben, I will give that a try next time I get stuck on a 14576. In case it is useful to you for your research, here is the relevant md.log portion of the 16417 (Run 1642, Clone 2, Gen 2) WU that failed on April 9th.

Sometimes, it would segfault too. My logs show that it caught signal SIGSEGV(11) 9 times out of out of 306 attempted runs.

I then changed my slot to 23 CPU threads, and it began folding (after FAHClient automatically reduced the threads to 21):

Picked up another 14576 and it failed with 48 threads. I tried 45 threads as suggested. Project: 14576 (Run 0, Clone 2358, Gen 53) then ran perfectly. md.log has more information at the end of the file than it did during the previous failure. Also of note, the WU seems to be processing slightly faster. I seem to remember 18 second frames and now they are down to 15 seconds. md log:

This particular project will run on the following core counts: 1,2,3,4,6,8,9,12,16,18,20,21,27,32,40,42,44,45,64

If you still have the work unit, please change the slot configuration from -1 CPUs to 27 and it should finish the work unit. You can change it back to -1 when it's complete to again use all cores.

Ran into one of these today. Folding on 45 until it passed. Project: 14576 (Run 0, Clone 3581, Gen 171). I do wonder if PantherX could work with the project owner to get this excluded from problematic core counts like with Project 16417.
