Yes, but after looking at the application I was testing it used some
functions (fwrite for instance) that were not traced by Darshan DxT,
although they appeared on the default Darshan report. So I looked at the
souce-code and those calls is not handled yet.

Yes, I set the variable via the MPICH -env option and now it worked ok for
