Hi all:

I have a user who's having trouble with his job submissions being
killed.  Here's the maui log (grepped for his job id).

http://pastebin.ca/1032376

Here's the qsub script in use:

##### declare a name for this job to be sample_job

#PBS -N MM5_mpi_job

##### request # of nodes

#PBS -l nodes=8

##### request hours and minutes of cpu time

#PBS -l cput=08:00:00

##### request hours and minutes of Wall time

#PBS -l walltime=08:00:00

##### mail is sent to you when the job starts and when it terminates or
aborts

#PBS -m bea

##### specify your email address

#PBS -M aeoluswsueecs at yahoo.com

# By default, PBS scripts execute in your home directory, not the
# directory from which they were submitted. The following line
# places you in the directory from which the job was submitted.

cd $PBS_O_WORKDIR

# run the program
#/path_to_executable/program_name arg1 arg2 ...

mpirun /mnt/pvfs2/ramos/MM5/Run/mm5.exe

exit(0)
---------------

My interpretation of what's happening: maui sees the request for 8
cpus, and schedules accordingly.  Then realizes that its using more
than 1 cpu and kills the job.

I've tried with a more simplistic script, but with no difference.  Any
suggestions?

Thanks!
