A simple way is to use the built-in tool of OpenMX as explained at
However, the tool does not give the precise analysis of memory usage.
So, I recommend you to use tools of performance analysis such as VTune
and CrayPat provided by vender.
> Why can we reduce memory size by mixing method?
As the number of MPI processes increases, buffer memory used for MPI communications
will also be allocated, resulting in increase of the total memory requirement.
Also some of arrays are not properly parallelized for the conventional diagonalization,
which largely increases the memory requirement.
For the latter case, by using the ScaLAPACK version one can reduce the memory requirement.
Take a look at
