I think setting global limits will not help in this case as the limits
like stacksize need to be program specific.
So far I am using wrappers, however the solution is a bit nasty.
If there is another way it would be great.
Hoever I doubt that there is a way as the FAQ states:
More specifically -- it may not be sufficient to simply execute the
following, because the ulimit may not be in effect on all nodes where
Open MPI processes will be run:
shell$ ulimit -l unlimited
shell$ mpirun -np 2 my_mpi_application
But this case is what is needed as any global or user global (bashrc
zshrc .. ) setting will only work if you run one kind of jobs at the
ulimit -s 300000
mpirun -np 2 zsh -c wrap.sh
works but is not nice.
