If you do decide to use OpenMPI, though, be sure that the version you 
install has the TM interface enabled.  For example, I've been testing 
NPACI Rocks 4.3 and 5.0, and, since they're based on CentOS, the OpenMPI 
package doesn't include TM by default.  You might have to recompile.  
See "http://www.open-mpi.org/faq/?category=building#build-rte-tm", for 
details, including how to tell if your precompiled version already has 
it.  It's not too tough.
