I can use "env NODES=-1,0 mpirun --p4 -np 2 ./hello++" to directly
inform mpirun to dispatch hello++ to master node and node 0, but with
"env NODES=-1,0 mpirun --gm -np 2 ./hello++" it will fail because master
node doesn't appear in the node list so GM ID of master node can not be
found, mpich-gm that Clustermatic supplied needs GM ID to establish
communication, not IP address. I have fast ethernet and myrinet
interface each in my cluster nodes, master and slaves. Anyway, thank you
for your reply.
