   what i observed is that :
            """ before this problem arise , we are using torque with
external scheduler(Moab) so in pbs script i used for number of processor
is #PBS -l ncpus=2 and it set PBS_NODEFILE .
             But this time , for some testing purpose when we used only
torque it does not set PBS_NODEFILE environment variable. If u used #PBS
-l nodes=2 then torque will set PBS_NODEFILE environment variable and
everything goes smooth.
             if u observed the same , please tell me the reason why this
is so? """
