when you get the second form of activation of the rsh call in your 
listing, you are getting a so called Tight Integration of your parallel

The second version you posted in your file is the one to go for. Did you 
patched already the perl script, or is the "exec" now already also 
included in 1.2.4..8?

When you use a Tight Integration, SGE can kill the processes for sure. 
In the first form (using rsh), SGE isn't aware at all of child tasks on 
the slaves, and so nothing will be killed there (whether you set 
terminate_method to NONE or a signal).

When you get the second form, it should also work for Myrinet. 
Otherwise: can you please post the output of the master or a slave of a job:

ps -e f -o pid,ppid,pgrp,command --cols=500

As long as all processes are in the same process group for each qrsh 
call, they should be killed.

For MPICH 1.2.6 it was working out of the box?

Which version of SGE are you using? Maybe this is the bug, which is 
removed in 6.0u4.

qconf -mconf

and then you can change the default entry "loglevel log_warning" to 
"loglevel log_info" using the opened vi editor.

The second is the correct one.

How are you starting your parallel jobs? It looks also in the first case 
like a Myrinet job.
