I just browsed FAQ and "ompi_info --param all all", but didn't find the
How do I set the OMPI session directory to point it to a ramdisk?
And another question:
What would be a good size for the ram disk? One general value was
supposed by the FAQ with 128MB, but what is your experience?
(maybe a large topic by itself, so I have to try out, I guess)
Thanks a lot.
