Hi Chris,

Is there a reason why you aren't using srun for launching these?


If you're using mpirun then (unless you've built mvapich2 with Slurm support) 
then you'll be relying on ssh to launch tasks and so that could be what's 
broken for you.  Running with srun will avoid that and allow Slurm to track 
your processes correctly.

All the best,
