Building from source
There are a lot of issues when building WRF from source, but most is covered in the WRF documentation. Below are some hints that apply locally.
Please make sure all modules are using the same toolchain, like
When building WRF from source and using Intel compiler some small changes are needed in the
arch/configure.defaults file. In the section for Intel icc/ifort the lines specifying mpiwrappers should read :
DM_FC = mpiifort
DM_CC = mpiiccThis is suggested in the section header.
In addition when building on Betzy with AMD processors the
-xAVX does not work if the main routine is built using this setting. Experience have shown that changing the default flag on file arch/configure.defaults by modifying the line
OPTAVX = -xAVX to
OPTAVX = -arch=core-avx2 yield the same performance.
