I have compiled and installed OpenMPI on Mac OS X. As I undertstand it, I can have mpirun start jobs using either ssh/xgrid or any other system (PBS, etc.) that I have installed. How can I configure which method is used? What process does ompi/orte go through to select which method to use?

Currently I am mainly interested in ssh/xgrid at this point, but PBS soon. How do these work? From poking around it looks like there are lots of MCA parameters for the ras/pls modules that are relevant. But there is very little documentation about what they all do.

Can anyone give me pointers about where to look for more documentation?
