My questions relate to MPD. The only info I could find in the Intel installations docs were:
"The contents of the machines.LINUX file can also be
used by you to construct an
mpd.hosts file for the multi-purpose daemon (MPD)
protocol. The MPD protocol is used for running MPI applications that utilize Intel
I got the daemons to work and can run MPI programs, but as a system admin I need more info on these. How do they function? Do they need to be run for every user separately? It seems that you can create more than 1 daemon per node... why would you do this??
Is there anywhere I can find more info on MPD and its inner workings?
