tmLQCD is a freely available software suite providing a set of tools to be used in lattice QCD simulations. This is mainly a HMC (including PHMC and RHMC) implementation for Wilson, Wilson Clover and Wilson twisted mass fermions and inverter for different versions of the Dirac operator. The code is fully parallelised and ships with optimisations…

README

Here are some remarks collected in order to configure, compile and
install the tmLQCD programme suit. For more information, also about running
the code please read the documentation in the doc sub-directory. 

CONFIGURE and COMPILE

It is recommended to build the code not in the source directory but in
a separate directory.

The lime library (tested with version 1.2.3) is needed to compile the
program. Please download it at

http://usqcd.jlab.org/usqcd-software/c-lime/

Configure and compile lime (for documentation see
http://usqcd.jlab.org/usqcd-docs/c-lime/) first.
Then you should use the configure option --with-lime=dir for the
tmLQCD to set the correct directory where to find lime (see below). 

For more documentation please change into the doc directory and type
latex main.tex
and see the sections for configuring, installing and testing the code.

Here we have gathered some examples for some standard architectures.
Building the tmLQCD executables is a three step procedure:

****************************************************************************

1) configure:

In your build directory type

path-to-the-sources/configure --help

to get an overview of the available options and switches. In
particular check out the prefix option for your installation path. 
What follows now are some examples for a few standard architectures.

- a scalar build on a P4 machine would look like:

path-to-the-sources/configure --disable-mpi --enable-sse2 --enable-p4 \
  --enable-gaugecopy --disable-newdiracop --with-limedir=<path-to-lime> \
  --with-lapack="<linker options needed for lapack>" \
  CC=<cc>

- Opteron with SSE2:

path-to-the-sources/configure --disable-mpi --enable-sse2 --enable-opteron \
  --enable-gaugecopy --disable-newdiracop --with-limedir=<path-to-lime> \
  --with-lapack="<linker options needed for lapack>" \
  CC=<cc>

- A MPI parallel (4dims) build on a P4 cluster:

path-to-the-sources/configure --enable-mpi --enable-sse2 --enable-p4 \
  --with-mpidimension=4 --enable-gaugecopy --disable-newdiracop \
  --with-limedir=<path-to-lime> --with-lapack="<linker options needed for lapack>" \
  CC=<mpicc>

- on the Munich Altix machine:

path-to-the-sources/configure --enable-mpi --with-mpidimension=4 \
  --with-limedir=<path-to-lime> --enable-newdiracop \
  --disable-shmem --with-lapack="<linker options needed for lapack>" \
  CC=mpicc CFLAGS="-mcpu=itanium2 -O3 -g -c99 -mtune=itanium2" 

for lapack on this machine please type
module load mkl


- on the HLRB ice installation use

path-to-the-sources/configure --enable-mpi --with-mpidimension=4 \
   --disable-sse2 --disable-p4  --with-limedir=<path-to-lime> \
   --enable-newdiracop --with-lapack="<linker options needed for lapack>" \
   CC="mpicc -std=c99" CFLAGS="-g" \

where it is again important to use the Intel C compiler! 

for lapack first load the module mkl and then use

--with-lapack="-L$LIBRARY_PATH -llapack -lblas"

- on Blue Gene installations

For the Blue Gene see the README.bg? files

You may enable or disable other configure options as needed. See the
documentation for more details.

****************************************************************************

2) make

type `make` in your build directory.

If there appears no error message during compilation you should end up
with a few executable in the build directory, namely `hmc_tm`,
`invert` and `invert_doublet`.

****************************************************************************

3) make install

type `make install`

to get the executables installed.
