Subject: [OMPI users] Some Newbie questions

Greeting all,

I am new to Open MPI and I have some newbie questions. I have given 4
machines at our laboratory to set up Open MPI.Our net work is simply
TCP/Ethernet running Debian Linux.

1) After installing OpenMPI on each machine ,do i need to run a
service/daemon on each machine? (How does peers in MPI environment
communicate ?)

2) After implementing parallel program , do I have to install the
application on every machine ? (I thought the program automatically
propagated to other peers , like in RMI applications? )

Thanks in advance,
