So we got a new node in that has 2 MIC cards and I thought it would be good to compile torque with support for it since that is available.
All went well as far as the compile/install, but...
It seems I have to install some of the MIC packages on all the nodes even without a MIC card installed.
In particular, I need to install :
for dependency: intel-mic-kmod-2.1.6720-220.127.116.11.358.el6.x86_64.rpm
for dependency: intel-mic-flash-2.1.386-18.104.22.168-358.el6.x86_64.rpm
That is just to get the particular libraries: libcoi_host.so.0 and libscif.so.0
I also need to symlink libcoi_host.so.0 to be in /lib64 as well
If I don't do the above steps, pbs_mom will not start.
I suggest there be code in pbs_mom similar to the gpu code in that if the kernel driver is not loaded, pbs_mom does not bother with MIC code.
