Speed of VASP job on cluster

Postby prodyutroy » Fri Aug 03, 2018 3:11 pm

When I am running a vasp job on a cluster assigning 32 nos. of cores on a single node the job completes two to three times more faster than that when I am running the same job with same or more no. of cores sharing on two nodes. Why is this happenning ?

you have a very slow network connection or did not adapt NPAR/KPAR.
