 I am having issues implementing Rmpi (for the R language) with SGE. Our SGE system is up and working well with OpenMPI, and programs compiled in C with mpicc spawn across all nodes after a qsub. So all that seems to be working as expected.

When running R straight off any node (via mpirun R < script.R --no-slave ), Rmpi spawns correctly, but of course only on that one node. When submitting to SGE via qsub with a submit script, the R program hangs on the Rmpi load in the R script (require (Rmpi)).

I was curious if any one can give me insight on why this is happening, and what I might need to do to get Rmpi working correctly with SGE.

Thanks everyone,
