The question of OpenMP vs MPI has been around for a long time,
My general impression is that it is a waste of time to convert from pure
a hybrid approach. For example:
On the other hand, here's a fellow who got a 4X speedup by going to hybrid:
My own view is that with a modern cluster with fast processors and with
inter-node communications not
that much slower than a cache miss to main memory, the unified MPI model
makes more sense, but
there are many many papers arguing about this topic.
