You need to ensure that you set the "gproc_dist" environment variable on
the "gproc" app to something appropriate.  You can use 'all', an
explicit list of the nodes, or point it at a seed node which IIUC will
gossip the membership of the others.

For instance:

-gproc gproc_dist 'all'
-gproc gproc_dist "{[], [{seed, ''}]}"

Kind Regards,
