orte-dvm, ompi_dvm \- Establish a Distributed Virtual Machine (DVM).

.SH SYNOPSIS
.
.PP
.B orte-dvm
[ options ]
.P

Invoking \fIorte-dvm\fP via an absolute path
name is equivalent to specifying the \fI--prefix\fP option with a
\fI<dir>\fR value equivalent to the directory where \fIorte-dvm\fR
resides, minus its last subdirectory.  For example:

    \fB%\fP /usr/local/bin/orte-dvm ...

is equivalent to

    \fB%\fP orte-dvm --prefix /usr/local

.
.\" **************************
.\"    Quick Summary Section
.\" **************************
.SH QUICK SUMMARY
.
\fIorte-dvm\fP will establish a DVM that can be used to execute subsequent
applications. Use of \fIorte-dvm\fP can be advantageous, for example, when you want to
execute a number of short-lived tasks. In such cases, the time required to start
the ORTE DVM can be a significant fraction of the time to execute the
overall application. Thus, creating a persistent DVM can speed the overall
execution. In addition, a persistent DVM will support executing multiple parallel
applications while maintaining separation between their respective cores.

.B -h\fR,\fP --help
Display help for this command
.
.
.TP
.B -V\fR,\fP --version
Print version number.  If no other arguments are given, this will also
cause orte-dvm to exit.
.
.

Use one of the following options to specify which hosts (nodes) of the cluster to use
for the DVM.
.
.
.TP
.B -H\fR,\fP -host\fR,\fP --host \fR<host1,host2,...,hostN>\fP
List of hosts for the DVM.
.
.
.TP

-hostfile\fR,\fP --hostfile \fR<hostfile>\fP
Provide a hostfile to use.
.
.
.TP
.B -machinefile\fR,\fP --machinefile \fR<machinefile>\fP
Synonym for \fI-hostfile\fP.
.
.
.TP
.B --prefix \fR<dir>\fP
Prefix directory that will be used to set the \fIPATH\fR and
\fILD_LIBRARY_PATH\fR on the remote node before invoking the ORTE daemon.
.
.
.P
Setting MCA parameters:
.
.
.TP
.B -gmca\fR,\fP --gmca \fR<key> <value>\fP
Pass global MCA parameters that are applicable to all contexts. \fI<key>\fP is
the parameter name; \fI<value>\fP is the parameter value.
.
.
.TP
.B -mca\fR,\fP --mca <key> <value>
Send arguments to various MCA modules.  See the "MCA" section, below.
.
.
.
.
.TP
.B -report-uri\fR,\fP --report-uri <channel>
Print out orte-dvm's URI during startup. The channel must be either a '-' to indicate that
the URI is to be output to stdout, a '+' to indicate that the URI is to be output to stderr,
or a filename to which the URI is to be written.
.
.
.P
The following options are useful for developers; they are not generally
useful to most ORTE and/or MPI users:
.
.TP
.B -d\fR,\fP --debug-devel
Enable debugging of the ORTE layer.
.
.
.TP
.B --debug-daemons-file
Enable debugging of the ORTE daemons in the DVM, storing
output in files.

.SH DESCRIPTION
.
\fIorte-dvm\fP starts a Distributed Virtual Machine (DVM) by launching
a daemon on each node of the allocation, as modified or specified by
the \fI-host\fP and \fI-hostfile\fP options. Applications can subsequently
be executed using the \fIorte-submit\fP command.
.
The DVM remains in operation until receiving the \fIorte-submit -terminate\fP
command.
.
.
.
.SS Specifying Host Nodes
.
Host nodes can be identified on the \fIorte-dvm\fP command line with the \fI-host\fP
option or in a hostfile.
.
.PP
For example,
.
.TP 4
orte-dvm -H aa,aa,bb ./a.out
launches two processes on node aa and one on bb.
.
.PP
Or, consider the hostfile
.

   \fB%\fP cat myhostfile
   aa slots=2
   bb slots=2
   cc slots=2

.
.PP
Here, we list both the host names (aa, bb, and cc) but also how many "slots"
there are for each.  Slots indicate how many processes can potentially execute
on a node.  For best performance, the number of slots may be chosen to be the
number of cores on the node or the number of processor sockets.  If the hostfile
does not provide slots information, a default of 1 is assumed.
When running under resource managers (e.g., SLURM, Torque, etc.),
Open MPI will obtain both the hostnames and the number of slots directly
from the resource manger.
