Generally, these indicate that the remote process has died.
Generally, that means an abnormal termination due to segmentation
faults or the like. You might want to run the code under a debugger
to see if it shows anything useful. If your cluster doesn't have a
parallel debugger like TotalView or DDT available, you can (for small
numbers of processes) get away with using xterm and gdb, something like:

   mpirun -np X -d xterm -e gdb <application>

It'll open X xterms, each with a gdb running one instance of the

Good luck,
