     294An experimenter can specify their own packing using the {{{containers:partition}}} attribute; it is integer-valued.  All nodes with the smae partition are allocated to the same machine.  If nodes have that attribute attached to them, {{{containers.py}}} will assume that they all have been paritioned and use those.  Nodes without a partition assigned are taken to be {{{embedded_pnode}}}s.

     298Hopefully these illustrative examples have given you an idea of how to use the containers system and what it is capable of.  More details are available from [wiki:Reference the reference page].  Please [mailto:faber@isi.edu contact us] if you have difficulties.
