    Mellanox HPC-X environment variables. Use the map or the terrain?

    nsmeds

      Reading the (latest I hope) HPC-X manual http://www.mellanox.com/related-docs/prod_acceleration_software/HPC-X_Toolkit_User_Manual_v1.3.pdf I get a bit puzzled.

       

      There are several environment variables mentioned that I can not find in the libraries. Is the table up to date and correct?

      Example 1

      Manual says: MXM_INIT_HOOK_SCRIPT

      But the name I find is INIT_HOOK_SCRIPT

      $ strings -a /opt/mellanox/mxm/lib/libmxm.so | grep HOOK

      INIT_HOOK_SCRIPT

       

      Example 2

      Manual says: MXM_SINGLE_THREAD

      But the names I find is:   

      $ strings -a /usr/lib64/libmlx5.a | grep SINGLE

      MLX5_SINGLE_THREADED

      and

      $ strings -a /opt/mellanox/mxm/lib/libmxm.so | grep SINGLE

      SINGLE_THREAD

      IBV_EXP_THREAD_SINGLE

      _SC_SINGLE_PROCESS

       

      Is the manual correct or am I reading an out-dated version?
