I believe I answered that question. You can use the hostfile info key, or you can use the host info key - either one will do what you require.

I think I was not specific enough. I need to spawn the copies of a process in a unique mpi_spawn call. It is, I have to specify a list of machines and how many copies of the process will be spawned on each one. Is it possible?

I would be something like that:

machines     #copies
m1                1
m2                3
m3                1

After an unique call to spawn, I want the copies running in this fashion. I tried use a hostfile with the option slot, but I'm not sure if it is the best way.


m1 slots=1
m2 slots=3
m3 slots=1
