We have an internal set of tests we run against Open MPI, but many
can not be released, so we've made the entire repository of tests
available only to members of the Open MPI development team. The two
popular sets of tests are the IBM test suite (which is what the LAM
test suite is based off of) and the Intel test suite. Generally,
those are a good start to making sure your code works. Of course,
you might want to start with something dead simple, like NetPIPE, and
work your way up ;).
