Hah, well look at that.  We have indeed been setting this for a couple of years:


I was kind of surprised to see a GNI setting had bubbled up through two abstraction layers, but thanks for the suggestion.

I must have a defective mental model for what's going on here.  I did some experimenting and it turns out I only had to cut the value of udreg_reg_limit in half (1024) in order to get 64 process per node (up to three nodes so far) working.

Hopefuly this will be the last time you hear from me as I try to scale things up further.   I appreciate the the quick responses so far.
