Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Error when trying to kill a spawned process

Why are you using ompi-clean for this purpose instead of a simple ctrl-c?

It wasn't intended for killing jobs, but only for attempting cleanup of lost processes in extremity (i.e., when everything else short of rebooting the node fails). So it isn't robust by any means.
