Hi Jeff,
thank's for your response.
I used the comments you send me to try on our own cluster.
But i notice that the nice value with the mpi jobs just affect the 
master node of the job. All the other mpich program on the "slaves" node 
run with a ice value of 0. Do you have the same behavior?
Best regards.
