Not as accurate or just different? Different is normal and in light of
that accurate is itself a vague concept.

I'd say it's obvious all 32 processes have been located on the same
node, what was the mpirun command you issued and the contents of the
machinefile you used?
Running "orte-ps" on the machine where the mpirun command is running
will tell you the hostname where every rank is running or if you want
more information (load, cpu usage etc) you can use padb, the link for
which is in my signature.
