Subject: [OMPI devel] OMPI_MCA_opal_set_max_sys_limits
From: Eugene Loh (eugene.loh_at_[hidden])

  Maybe someone can help me from having to think too hard.

Let's say I want to max my system limits. I can say this:

     % mpirun --mca opal_set_max_sys_limits 1 ...


Meanwhile, if I do this:

     % setenv OMPI_MCA_opal_set_max_sys_limits 1
     % mpirun ...

remote processes don't see the setting. (Local processes and ompi_info
are fine.)

Bug? Naively, this looks "wrong." At least disturbing, in any case.

This is with v1.5.
