Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Maui + Slurm + OpenMPI

Open MPI should just be *using* SLURM and should be agnostic of
whatever scheduler you choose to use (indeed, OMPI doesn't even have
visibility of which scheduler you are using). OMPI's mpirun will use
"srun" to launch the MPI processes in a SLURM job -- it may be helpful
to see check out what is happening differently with Maui with the sub-
srun that mpirun invokes...?

The SLURM development list might be able to provide more insight here.
