       music - launch a multi-simulation using MUSIC


       mpirun [mpirun-options] music [options] config
       music [options] config...


       This manual page documents briefly the music utility.

       music   is  used  to  launch  a  multi-simulation,  i.e.,  an  MPI  job
       partitioned between a set of parallel programs.  Such programs need  to
       be  MUSIC-aware  (see documentation for the MUSIC library).  MUSIC also
       provides facilities for these programs to exchange data.

       The second form of the command above (without mpirun) can  be  used  to
       print out an application rank map or version information.


       The  music utility follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary  of  options  is
       included below.  For a complete description, see the MUSIC manual.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -m, --map
              Print application rank map.

       -v, --version
              Show version of program.
