MPICH2 condensed instructions:

mpd daemon ring setup (MPICH2 installed supposed)

1. At all nodes:
cd $HOME
touch .mpd.conf
chmod 600 .mpd.conf
nano .mpd.conf
(if there's no nano - aptitude install nano)
Enter in the file:
_secretword_ must be the same at all nodes
2. At all nodes in /etc/hosts as root enter all nodes IP's, for the current node change by its actual IP.
3. At head node run:
mpd &
mpdtrace -l

Get _host_ _ _port_
4. At slave nodes run
mpd -h _host_ -p _port_ &
5. See if the daemon ring started by running

Running mpiexec (2 examples)

1. mpiexec -machinefile /home/user/mfile -np 4 -wdir /home/user ./_YourCode_
The content of the file mfile:

2 - number of cores

2. mpiexec -genv FOO BAR -n 2 -host Slave0 a.out : -n 2 -host Slave1 b.out

FOO - environment variable
BAR - its value
a.out and b.out - executables.
