Does your application do a lot of printing to stdout/stderr?

I want to migrate my CFD application from MPICH-1.2.4 (ch_p4 device) to
OpenMPI-1.4. Hence, I compared the two libraries compiled with my
application and I noted OpenMPI is less efficient thant MPICH on
ethernet (170min with MPICH against 200min with OpenMPI). So, I wonder
if someone has more information/explanation.
Here the configure options of OpenMPI:
./configure --prefix=$PREFIX --enable-cxx-exceptions --enable-mpi-f77
--enable-mpi-f90 --enable-mpi-cxx --enable-mpi-cxx-seek --enable-dist
--enable-mpi-profile --enable-binaries --enable-cxx-exceptions
--enable-mpi-threads --enable-memchecker --with-pic --with-threads
--with-valgrind --with-libnuma --with-openib
Despite my OpenMPI compilation supports OpenIB, I did not specified any
mca/btl options because the machine does not have access to a
Infiniband interconnect. So, I guess tcp, sm and self are used (or at
least something close).
Thank you for your help.
