Running LS DYNA on a cluster

Running LS DYNA on a cluster


Hi all,

I am trying to run LS DYNA on a cluster and I am able to run with one processor only, When I try to use more than one processor, it gives me an error "Signal 11: Segmentation Violation" in the job file.

I am running it using the attached batch file.

The hardware specifications for the cluster are:

Compute nodes

The newly added compute nodes are all SuperMicro super servers TP-2028 chassis configured as follows.

SuperMicro TP-2028: 4 node chassis with each node containing dual 16 core Haswell CPUs with 256 GB DDR4 ram and 6 300GB 15K SAS drives in raid 0.

Is there some setting I need to change in my k file or in the batch file. I appreciate it if anyone can help me with this issue.

Thanks in advance.
