Hi,

Two queries.

1) Is Open MPI thread-safe (assuming the system-supplied libraries are
thread-safe)? In particular will it be possible to call MPI routines
from OpenMP regions and will it be possible to use OpenMP directives
within MPI tasks?

2) Does Open MPI use the same mechanism as LAM-MPI's "lamboot" (rsh/ssh)
to start daemons on other nodes or is there a different mechanism
altogether?

Regards
        Neil Storer
