MPI Fault Tolerance

ORNL is working on a reference implementation of the ongoing proposal for MPI fault tolerant. The current proposal focuses on User-Level Failure Mitigation (ULFM); a flexible approach providing process fault tolerance by allowing the application to react to failures while maintaining a minimal execution path in failure-free executions. The focus is on returning control to the application by avoiding deadlocks due to failures within the MPI library. We consider the proposed set of functions to constitute a minimal basis which allows libraries and applications to increase the fault tolerance capabilities by supporting additional types of failures, and to build other desired strategies and consistency models to tolerate faults. The reference implementation developed at ORNL is based on the Scalable runTime Component Infrastructure (STCI), developed at ORNL, as well as an extension of the MPI implementation of the Open-MPI layer (extension led by UTK).
