SU2 installation on HPC

I am buying a rack of HPC (it is composed of 4 nodes, 2 processors per node) and I would like to know if someone has already installed SU2 on such a computer, or if someone knows the installation procedure. It seems that a tool that shares the tasks between the different nodes is necessary. If anyone knows anything on this subject, I am interested!

Thank you in advance for your help!

The key is the installation of OpenMPI and the metis grid partitioning. Once you have mpicxx running, you should configure su2 using

./configure --with-MPI=mpicxx --with-Metis-lib=/usr/local/metis-4.0.3 --with-Metis-include=/usr/local/metis-4.0.3/Lib
