I reran the configure script with the --with-tm flag this time. Thanks
for the info. It was working before for clients with ssh properly
configured (i.e. my account only). But now it is working without having
to use ssh for all accounts (i.e. biologist and physicists users).

You don't *have* to do this, of course. If you've got it working
with ssh, that's fine. But the integration with torque can be better:

- you can disable ssh for non-root accounts (assuming no other
services need rsh/ssh)
- users don't have to setup ssh keys to run MPI jobs (a small thing,
but sometimes nice when the users aren't computer scientists)
- torque knows about all processes on all nodes (not just the mother
superior) and can therefore both track and kill them if necessary

Just my $0.02...
