Hi,

I try to submit two MPI jobs using single OpenMPI mpirun command (command can be seen in job submission script). To test this configuration, i compiled simple mpihello application and run. The problem is that each distinct mpihello jobs (run1 and run2) uses same MPI_COMM_WORLD and rank of the process goes like following,
 
--- out1 (comes from first mpihello.x) ---
 node          17 : Hello world
 node          28 : Hello world
...
...

--- out2 (comes from second mpihello.x) ---

 node         115 : Hello world
 node         113 : Hello world
 node          74 : Hello world
...
...

If the MPI_COMM_WORLD is created separately for each jobs then the node number (or id or rank) must be start from 0 until 63 in each log file but this is not the case. So, in the second one the node numbers start from 64 to 131. If Fortran application uses MPI_COMM_SIZE and MPI_COMM_RANK to get the total number of processor (in this case it is 132), then rank and total number of processor will be wrong. I think mpirun is not smart enough in this case. What do you think? Any suggestions can help.

PS: I am using OpenMPI version 1.5.3 compiled with Intel 12.0.4 compilers.
