Run 'top' For long running applications you should see 4 processes
each at 50% (4*50=200% two cpus).
You are ok, your hello_c did what it should, each of thoese 'hello's
could have came from any of the two cpus.
Also if your only running on your local machine, you don't need a
hostfile, and -byslot is meaningless in this case,
mpirun -np 4 ./hello_c
Would work just fine.
