       lamwipe - Shutdown LAM.


       lamwipe  [-b]  [-d]  [-h] [-v] [-nn] [-np] [-n <#>] [-prefix </lam/install/path>] [-prefix
              </lam/install/path/>]    [-sessionprefix    <value>]    [-sessionsuffix    <value>]
              [-withlamprefixpath <value>] [-ssi <key> <value>] [<bhost>]


       -b          Assume  local  and remote shell are the same.  This means that only one remote
                   shell invocation is used to each node.  If -b is not used,  two  remote  shell
                   invocations are used to each node.

       -d          Turn on debugging mode.  This implies -v.

       -h          Print the command help menu.

       -n <#>      Lamwipe only the first <#> nodes.

       -prefix     Use the LAM installation specified in </lam/install/path/>

       -ssi <key> <value>
                   Send arguments to various SSI modules.  See the "SSI" section, below.

       -v          Be verbose.

       -nn         Don't add "-n" to the remote agent command line

       -np         Do not force the execution of $HOME/.profile on remote hosts

       -session-prefix <value>
                   Set the session prefix, overriding LAM_MPI_SESSION_PREFIX.

       -session-suffix <value>
                   Set the session suffix, overriding LAM_MPI_SESSION_SUFFIX.

       -withlamprefixpath <value>
                   Override  the  internal  installation path.  For internal use only, do not use
                   unless you know what you are doing.


       This command has been deprecated in favor of the lamhalt command.  lamwipe should only  be
       necessary  if  lamhalt  fails  and  is  unable  to  clean  up the LAM run-time environment
       properly.  The lamwipe tool terminates the LAM software on each of the machines  specified
       in  the  boot  schema,  <bhost>.   lamwipe is the topology tool that terminates LAM on the
       UNIX(tm) nodes of a multicomputer system.  It  invokes  tkill(1)  on  each  machine.   See
       tkill(1) for a description of how LAM is terminated on each node.

       The  <bhost> file is a LAM boot schema written in the host file syntax.  CPU counts in the
       boot schema are ignored by lamwipe.  See bhost(5).  Instead of the command  line,  a  boot
       schema  can  be specified in the LAMBHOST environment variable.  Otherwise a default file,
       bhost.def, is used.  LAM searches for <bhost> first in the local directory and then in the
       installation directory under etc/.

       lamwipe  does  not quit if a particular remote node cannot be reached or if tkill(1) fails
       on any node.  A message is printed if either of these failures occur, in  which  case  the
       user  should investigate the cause of failure and, if necessary, terminate LAM by manually
       executing tkill(1) on the problem node(s).   In  extreme  cases,  the  user  may  have  to
       terminate individual LAM processes with kill(1).

       lamwipe will terminate after a limited number of nodes if the -n option is given.  This is
       mainly intended for use by  lamboot(1),  which  invokes  lamwipe  when  a  boot  does  not
       successfully complete.

   SSI (System Services Interface)
       The  -ssi  switch  allows  the  passing  of  parameters to various SSI modules.  LAM's SSI
       modules are described in detail in lamssi(7).  SSI  modules  have  direct  impact  on  MPI
       programs  because  they allow tunable parameters to be set at run time (such as which boot
       device driver to use, what parameters to pass to that driver, etc.).

       The -ssi switch takes two arguments: <key> and  <value>.   The  <key>  argument  generally
       specifies  which SSI module will receive the value.  For example, the <key> "boot" is used
       to select which RPI to be used for  starting  processes  on  remote  nodes.   The  <value>
       argument is the value that is passed.  For example:

       lamboot -ssi boot tm
           Tells  LAM  to  use  the  "tm"  boot  module  for native launching in PBSPro / OpenPBS
           environments (the tm boot module does not require a boot schema).

       lamboot -ssi boot rsh -ssi rsh_agent "ssh -x" boot_file
           Tells LAM to use the "rsh" boot module, and tells the rsh module to use  "ssh  -x"  as
           the specific agent to launch executables on remote nodes.

       And so on.  LAM's boot SSI modules are described in lamssi_boot(7).

       The  -ssi  switch  can  be  used  multiple times to specify different <key> and/or <value>
       arguments.  If the same <key> is specified more than once, the <value>s  are  concatenated
       with a comma (",") separating them.

       Note  that  the  -ssi  switch is simply a shortcut for setting environment variables.  The
       same effect may be accomplished by  setting  corresponding  environment  variables  before
       running   lamwipe.    The   form   of   the  environment  variables  that  LAM  sets  are:

       Note that the -ssi switch overrides any previously set environment variables.   Also  note
       that unknown <key> arguments are still set as environment variable -- they are not checked
       (by lamwipe) for correctness.  Illegal or incorrect <value> arguments may or  may  not  be
       reported -- it depends on the specific SSI module.

   Remote Executable Invocation
       All  tweakable  aspects  of  launching  executables  on  remote  nodes  during lamwipe are
       discussed in lamssi(7) and lamssi_boot(7).  Topics  include  (but  are  not  limited  to):
       discovery  of  remote  shell,  run-time  overrides  of  the  agent  use  to  launch remote
       executables (e.g., rsh and ssh), etc.


       lamwipe -v mynodes
           Shutdown LAM on the machines described in the  boot  schema,  mynodes.   Report  about
           important steps as they are done.

                                         directory where LAM/MPI was installed.
