View Full Version : starting remote MPI and N1GE

Hi. I'm trying to start a remote debugging session, but I'm not sure how to do it in the cleanest way. Here is the set up:

1 - We have 1 head node and multiple compute nodes. Jobs are submitted to N1GE from the head node to the compute nodes.

2 - X11 forwarding from the compute nodes to the head node is not working, however we can run the GUI part of totalview on the head node.

So, ideally, we would like to be able to submit an MPI job through N1GE which will start up on the compute nodes under the server part of totalview in a stopped state, then we would attach to this from the head node. My real question is, how do we start the MPI job originally?
