Testrun script used in autobuild uses charmrun that isn't allowed to run on a login node.

../../bin/testrun +p4 ./check 4 ++timeout 180 +isomalloc_sync
To access the system:

1) If not using ssh-keys, please enter your TACC password at the password prompt
2) At the TACC Token prompt, enter your 6-digit code followed by <return>.

Authenticated with partial success.

Probable Fix:
The fix would require modifying charmrun to support job submission (to a compute node) and then launching the executable with "./charmrun +p1 ++mpiexec ++remote-shell 'ibrun -o 0' ./executable".

  • Status changed from New to Implemented
  • % Done changed from 0 to 100
  • Estimated time set to 2.00 h

Fixed the 'src/scripts/testrun' script used by verbs autobuild to run jobs on stampede.
Fix included modifying the script to submit a job and waiting for it until it completes or until it hangs. The script is similar to the charmrun used by the gni layer (gni/charmrun)

  • Status changed from In Progress to Resolved

This would seem to have been dealt with, given that autobuild runs on Stampede pass. Please close if that's correct, and possibly link to any code change that was involved.

#4 Updated by Nitin Bhat over 2 years ago

  • Status changed from Resolved to Closed

It was decided to not modify testrun (or charmrun) and keep it platform agnostic. The fix involved making changes to the script that is used for launching Charm++ tests in nightly build runs on Stampede. The change has been committed in the autobuild repository. (
