My bad, I thought openmp had been included in gcc 3.x and up. That would explain why it ain't working. I did have a version compiled with the intel compilers and it was working fine. I just could not figure out why it didn't work with gcc 3.x and up.

Would it be possible to find out from you guys exactly bench mark I should build in order to test a 16 way SMP system? And secondly, how should I then run that benchmark?

I've done the following in NPB3.2-OMP/

make bt CLASS=A

and then run(per the README-3.1 instructions)

setenv OMP_SCHEDULE "static"
bin/BT.A > BT.A_out.16

but the results of the test show that only 1 thread has been utilized.

I am using gcc 3.4.5 and NO mpi library.

Am I doing it correctly and/or choosing the correct version of NPB?
