Yes, I do. I will change these entries then.

Yes, I tested with 50 nodes, worked both with $fill_up and $round_robin.

Regarding the mpiexec: I have honestly no idea. I will try to read the
source code - I am not using R and the Rmpi package myself, I am (only)
the admin of the cluster. Maybe someone on this mailing list can answer
this question?

You can ask questions like that on the R-sig-hpc mailing list.  There are probably more "users" on that list and the author of Rmpi subscribes to that list as well.


Have some happy holidays, if you have some!
Cheers and Thanks for all the replies,
