Subject: [OMPI devel] padb and spawned jobs
From: Ashley Pittman (ashley_at_[hidden])

All,

Just thought you should know I've updated padb so that it works
correctly with spawned jobs running under orte, before it didn't
distinguish between different steps in the same job and it would
probably have behaved wrong in a number of different situations.

I've now added a configuration option called 'orte-job-step' which tells
it which program to target, the default being undef which expands to the
lowest numbered step which is most likely 1.

I've copied the nomenclature here from Slurm which enumerates jobs in a
similar manner, there doesn't seem to be a specific name orte gives to
multiple "jobs" within the same job, if there is and I've missed one I'm
happy to change the name of the option to something more appropriate.

Ashley,
