This example illustrates a serial job which runs a single CPU on a single node. It does not take advantage of multi-processor nodes or the multiple compute nodes available with a cluster. The next sections explain how to create parallel jobs.

Request four cores on the cluster for 10 minutes, using 100 MB of RAM per core. Assuming hello.mpi was compiled with MPI support, srun will create four instances of it, on the nodes allocated by Slurm.
You can try the above example by downloading the example hello world program from Wikipedia (name it for instance wiki_mpi_example.c), and compiling it with
module load openmpi
