@pat-s In my experience, no, I've never had freezes during normal usage. I've been using R with the Intel MKL on all my computers for several years.

The only drawback I found was that some packages are not compatible with icc/icpc, therefore I sometimes need to fallback to gcc/gfortran in ~/.R/Makevars (e.g. for the forecast package)

Glad to hear it's working properly on your side now.

Usage related: I encountered several "freezes" during usage that only occurred with the "intel-mkl" library (not with openblas or default blas). No error is thrown, the process is just stuck at some point and there is no way to track down the problem. I'll try it again with the latest version, maybe something changed. Just wondering if anyone else faced similar problems in the past?

EDIT: Installation worked and the errors mentioned have vanished. Thanks!

@alexanderp : r-mkl-3.4.4-3 compiled with icc without any problem!

@alexanderp : I remembered it wrong. It was hung on the check stage.

@mys_721tx compilation with icc should be fixed now.

@nessuno I'll look into it.

nessuno commented on 2018-03-28 13:26

There's still an error (I don't know if significant)

Running the tests in ‘tests/sigma-fixed-etc.R’ failed.

but now it works for me, thanks!

@mys_721tx, it must be due to a missing dependency from Intel Parallel Studio. I'll have another look. Just to clarify, you're getting the hangup during checking, not building, right?

mys_721tx commented on 2018-03-28 00:33

So I enabled icc and was hang on "Running ‘Simple.R’" when building Matrix. I have openmp and ice installed. It seems to be the same problem as the one jbmorgado had. What kind of log should I provide?

alexanderp commented on 2018-03-27 22:51

Thanks for the reports. The Matrix hangup issue when using gcc is fixed as of 3.4.4-2.

Version 3.4.4-3 fixes compilation with icc as well.

Please note that there's a bug in intel-tbb_psxe. Specifically, /etc/ should contain /opt/intel/composerxe/linux/tbb/lib/intel64/gcc4.7

I have the same errors as nessuno. I htop to see what's causing the hang-up after waiting for a reasonable time, and then F9 sigterm the offending process. They are the same as he listed, plus a checking of vignette output thing that keeps hanging. It now succesfully builds, but somehow when I run a function from a package that falls back to fortran code, it causes a segfault :(.
