Subject: Re: [OMPI users] [torqueusers] Job dies randomly, but only through torque
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

(I'm not a subscriber to the torqueusers or mauiusers lists -- I'm not
sure my post will get through)

I wonder if Jan's idea has merit -- if Torque is killing the job for
some other reason (i.e., not wallclock). The message printed by
mpirun ("mpirun: killing job...") is *only* displayed if mpirun
receives a SIGINT or SIGTERM. So perhaps some other resource limit is
being reached...?

Is there a way to have Torque log if it is killing a job for some
