Mark, check this FAQ entry as well as #7 on the same page:

And while you are waiting for your current jobs, you could try
something non-invasive but OMPI-ish nevertheless:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <mpi.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
  int numprocs, rank, namelen;
  char processor_name[MPI_MAX_PROCESSOR_NAME];

  MPI_Init(&argc, &argv);
  MPI_Comm_size(MPI_COMM_WORLD, &numprocs);
  MPI_Comm_rank(MPI_COMM_WORLD, &rank);
  MPI_Get_processor_name(processor_name, &namelen);

  printf("Process %d on %s out of %d\n", rank, processor_name, numprocs);


Have fun.
