Subject: Re: [OMPI users] How to know which process is running on which core?

You mean via an API of some kind? Not through an MPI call, but you can do it
(though your code will wind up OMPI-specific). Look at the OMPI source code
in opal/mca/paffinity/paffinity.h and you'll see the necessary calls as well
as some macros to help parse the results.

Depending upon what version you are using, there may also be a function in
opal/mca/paffinity/base/base.h to pretty-print that info for you. I believe
it may only be in the developer's trunk right now, or it may have made it
into the 1.5.0 release candidate....
