I work on a platform with the PBS batch scheduler. I got a successful run of pyMPI code writing a bash script that runs the pyMPI code with a call to mpirun. Now, here's my question: I guess I could replace the bash script with a python (or, better yet, pyMPI) script. But at some point in the script I'm going to have to call mpirun or something like it. The only way I know to do it from a python/pyMPI script is to call a subprocess or something that can then call mpirun. Seems a shame to step out of pyMPI into the shell, and then back into pyMPI. Is there a more direct, pyMPI-only solution? Thanks.
Also, it seems like right now the documentation on pyMPI is a bit sparse. At least, I can't find much. Can anyone point me to some good docs? Thanks again.
