When 2 processes share a node and use shared memory for exchanges messages, my application don't terminate. At shell I write "mpirun -nolocal --mca self,sm,tcp ...

That's not right. If you want the apps to use shared memory, you don't have to do anything. However, if you do want to specify, then the correct syntax is

mpirun -mca btl self,sm,tcp
