Description Rafael Fonseca 2015-08-14 15:54:38 UTC
Created attachment 1063074 [details]
Disable mdrun test on ppc64 and s390

Description of problem: mdrun test case times out on ppc64 and s390[x].

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5.0.6-4

How reproducible: koji-build gromacs on ppc64 and s390[x].

Actual results:

      Start 15: MdrunTests

WARNING: Using the slow plain C kernels. This should
not happen during routine usage on supported platforms.

Additional info:

this looks like a hardware problem. Looking for the warning found in the build log, I found this thread [1] explaining that devs assume one will run gromacs on GPU accelerated platforms, or at least with SIMD-capable CPU, and the P7 is still too slow. The attached patch disables such a test on the affected platforms.

Comment 1 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2015-08-17 13:15:11 UTC
Thanks for the report. I'm in the process of upgrading gromacs to 5.1 for f24 (and will probably backport to f23 once bugs are shaken out). It doesn't time out. There are a couple of other issues, though. One is an out-of-memory error when running the testsuite on s390 (but s390x runs fine). Another is a compilation error on ppc64/ppc64le (reported upstream). I'll push the updated version to git soon.

Comment 2 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2015-08-17 20:09:11 UTC
Fixed in rawhide. I tested on ppc.koji and s390.koji, but feel free to test yourself and reopen if there are still some issues.

Comment 3 Rafael Fonseca 2015-11-27 15:13:05 UTC
It is indeed fixed for f>=23. Could you apply the fixes for f22 as well? Gromacs fails to build on f22/ppc64 [1].

Thank you.
