VASP 5.3.5 (Build 10)

Level of support

Tier 3 NSC will not be able to help you much with this program, either because we lack the in-house experience, or because it is a test installation. In general, these types of installations are untested, and will not be updated unless you send a request to NSC.

Please see the page describing our software support categories for more information.

Build of VASP using OpenMP

While OpenMP is not built into the VASP source code at present, it is available in the intel MKL library. For discussion, see the VASP wiki.

This installation is similar to build02, with the difference that the -openmp flag was used together with

BLAS= -mkl=parallel

and newer intel fortran compiler, intel mpi and mkl:

module add intel/ impi/ mkl/11.2.3

OBS: this is a version for testing purposes, not recommended for regular calculations.

How to run

Launch by mpprun using the direct path, e.g.:

mpprun /software/apps/vasp/5.3.5-01Apr14/build10/vasp

In the job script the number of threads needs to be set, for example:


Known issues
