hi again,
i have some more questions:)
here is my runing script for torque + maui+ mpich
#PBS -N bandymas
#PBS -l nodes=5:ppn=2
echo Starting Job:
echo Running script on...
cd /home/skriptai/mpi/
mpiexec -n 10 /home/skriptai/mpi/Profil_MPI_KLP.ex ch.txt

when jobs runing, sheduler says what jobs runing only on 5 nodes, each
2processors, but problems is what jobs are runing on 10 nodes, each 1
so mpiexec not really looks to PBS permissions. how to say to mpich use
only  5 PBS nodes with 2 processors? thx

p.s. sry for my poor english
