Subject: Re: [OMPI users] How to start MPI_Spawn child processes early?
From: Terry Frankcombe (terry_at_[hidden])

My question is why? If you are willing to reserve a chunk of your
machine for yet-to-exist tasks, why not just create them all at mpirun
time and slice and dice your communicators as appropriate?
