What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. mpicc -o t.x t.c -g
2. mpirun_rsh --hostfile=hfile -n 2 LD_PRELOAD=/home/niuq/tools/gperftools-2.0/gcc-build/lib/ HEAPPROFILE=./tprofile ./t.x
3. I can get tprofile.0004.heap  tprofile.0017.heap  tprofile.0030.heap but the thing is there not each processor seperate heap file. We can not distinguish which processor heap file comes from?
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected heap file seperately for each mpi processor. 

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
niuq@node020:~/code$ uname -a
Linux node020.cluster 2.6.32-131.0.15.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue May 10 15:42:40 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Please provide any additional information below.

niuq@node020:~/code$ cat t.c
#include <string.h> 
#include <mpi.h> 
int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { 
    int myrank;
    MPI_Comm_rank(MPI_COMM_WORLD, &myrank);
        size_t x=sizeof(int);
        printf( "size = %lu\n", x ); 
        int i;
            unsigned long s=100;
            int* sum=(int*)malloc(s*sizeof(int));
            int k;
            for(k=1;k<s;k++) sum[k]=sum[k-1]+5;
    return 0;

mpicc -o t.x t.c -g

Waiting on further comment. We had a possible solution over an email chat but it turns out that it doesn't cover all MPI implementations.
