[Trilinos-Users] [EXTERNAL] Hybrid parallelism in Trilinos

Which MPI library and version are you using?  Your MPI ranks are probably being bound to cores, in which case Kokkos only sees one thread.  You want to turn that off (or even better bind to sockets instead and do one MPI rank per socket).  The MPI options to do that depend on which library you are using.

My approach is to use the MpiComm communication and omp_set_num_threads to try to control the parallelism in my SpMV kernel when I call Tpetra::CrsMatrix::Apply. While I can confirm that running with SerialComm and setting omp_num_threads results in the correct number of threads being used, when I change that to MpiComm Kokkos seems to be ignoring the set number of OpenMP threads and hard-coding it to one thread. I’ve verified this behavior by observing the output of top during a run.
