I would strongly recommend that you use this.
Despite Reuti's valiant efforts, getting LAM/MPI working nicely is
incredibly annoying - even if you don't have multiple types of software
that use slightly different LAM/MPI installations, and even if your
LAM/MPI version is ostensibly GridEngine-aware.
We have both HP-MPICH (STAR-CD) and openmpi (OpenFOAM) in use and both
work fine with the GridEngine. LAM/MPI was never anything but annoying
to work with, and I'm glad not to touch it anymore.
For HP-MPICH, our pe looks like this:
start_proc_args /opt/n1ge6/mpi/startmpi.sh -catch_rsh $pe_hostfile
I prefer not to rely on the rsh wrapper that linked in by the -catch_rsh
mechanism will actually get seen first in the PATH. The STAR-CD scripts,
for example, have their own rsh wrapper that is also supposed to get
To be certain that qrsh is actually used by the MPICH transport, we
export these explicitly in the job-scripts:
MPI_REMSH=$SGE_ROOT/mpi/rsh; export MPI_REMSH
P4_RSHCOMMAND=$SGE_ROOT/mpi/rsh; export P4_RSHCOMMAND
And in the GridEngine configuration we have
rsh_daemon /usr/sbin/sshd -i
Even if you don't care about correct accounting, the tight integration
via qrsh is important if you want to avoid leaving zombie processes when
you use qdel to kill parallel jobs.
