[mpich-discuss] MPICH interact with RTDA

Having a manual mode of launching proxies sounds very interesting. I don’t think currently hydra supports it though.

The manually launched proxies need establish communication back to mpiexec.hydra — I suspect the mechanism already exist. I guess the next question is how to reliably detect launch failures other than having mpiexec.hydra hanging forever — maybe that is a valid option.

I'm trying integrate MPICH with network submission tool called RTDA(RunTime Design Automation - www.rtda.com<http://www.rtda.com/>), I use the mpich-3.2.1a but looks like that mpich doesn't detect the resource manager and launcher, mpich cannot distribute jobs as expected.

Does mpich support interact with RTDA resource manager and launcher?

Since the hydra process manager did tight integration with SGE, LSF, SLURM, PBS, etc. I was thinking for platform it doesn't support - if there is way to submit jobs with loose integration?
( loose integration means that we do the job submission self and run hydra_pmi_proxy on each allocated node manually, instead of mpich finished everything under the hood.

Thank you very much,
