Subject: Re: [OMPI users] btl_tcp_if_exclude param

Yes, it's right!

Now i can see btl_tcp_if_include flag:

MCA btl: parameter "btl_tcp_if_include" (current value: <none>, data source:
default value)
MCA btl: parameter "btl_tcp_if_exclude" (current value: "eth0,ib0,ib1", data
source: file

[/cineca/prod/opt/compilers/openmpi/1.3.3/intel--11.1--binary/etc/openmpi-mca-params.conf])

My actual configuration is:

btl = ^tcp
btl_tcp_if_exclude = eth0,ib0,ib1
oob_tcp_include = eth1,lo

But is it right? I have some doubt..
