We *thought* we were using a tight integration:
start_proc_args /opt/sge/mpi/startmpi.sh -catch_rsh $pe_hostfile
but we still had the problem with defunct and orphaned processes.
Our problem arose from the application (STAR-CD) being shipped with its own
rsh script (to select rsh or ssh).
Based on the path initialization etc, it could be that the rsh link set by
'-catch_rsh' wouldn't be reached and thus the normal rsh/ssh would be used
instead of qrsh.
We have since altered our scripts to explicitly use qrsh:
# use GridEngine qrsh for the mpi transport
MPI_REMSH=$SGE_ROOT/mpi/rsh; export MPI_REMSH
P4_RSHCOMMAND=$SGE_ROOT/mpi/rsh; export P4_RSHCOMMAND
A similar cure might help you with IntelMPI. You'll have to check the
documentation to see which variable(s) it uses to specify a repleacement for
the rsh transport.
