> What you're doing with he RAS is fine for now. In the next few days, I'll be changing the API to the RAS components, but it isn't a big change and we can adjust as you get closer. The orte_job_t object does contain the number of procs to be launched prior to the RAS being invoked, but you have to compute it. Each app_context contains that number - so to get it for the job, you cycle across all the app_contexts and add it up.
