Not sure how much of an issue it is, but an optimization problem came up with the new Cray-Braodwell environment at ECMWF with the intel environemnt. It happens only with cb05+M7+with_budget. With the default ifort environment (ifort 15), it is not possible to compile ebischeme. I got a "catastrophic" error message. The only way to compile that routine in that configuration, was to replace:

-fp-model strict
-fp-model strict -fp-model source
-fp-model source
Note that it does not compile either with
-fp-model precise
Not sure what are the consequences of that change. According to manual, -fp-model source option "causes intermediate results to be rounded to the precision defined in the source code".

Somehow the issue is also happening with cbm4, when using some of the without flags. The same change in the optimization flags fixes it.

  • % Done changed from 20 to 100

A new trial, and success: ebischeme.F90 is compiled without the -fp-model source flag.
This has more to do with code changes than compiling environment:

Reopened. This is still the case as far as I know.
