MPI_Comm_spawn_multiple - short description
int MPI_Comm_spawn_multiple(int count, char *array_of_commands,
char **array_of_argv, MPICH2_CONST int array_of_maxprocs,
MPICH2_CONST MPI_Info array_of_info, int root, MPI_Comm comm,
MPI_Comm *intercomm, int array_of_errcodes)
count - number of commands (positive integer, significant to MPI only
- programs to be executed (array of strings, significant only at
- arguments for commands (array of array of strings, significant
only at root)
- maximum number of processes to start for each command (array
of integer, significant only at root)
- info objects telling the runtime system where and how to start
processes (array of handles, significant only at root)
root - rank of process in which previous arguments are examined
comm - intracommunicator containing group of spawning processes
- intercommunicator between original group and newly spawned
- one error code per process (array of integer)
NOTES FOR FORTRAN
All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME and MPI_WTICK ) have
an additional argument ierr at the end of the argument list. ierr is
an integer and has the same meaning as the return value of the routine
in C. In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines, and are invoked with
the call statement.
All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype , MPI_Comm ) are of type INTEGER in
All MPI routines (except MPI_Wtime and MPI_Wtick ) return an error
value; C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in
the last argument. Before the value is returned, the current MPI error
handler is called. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job.
The error handler may be changed with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler (for
communicators), MPI_File_set_errhandler (for files), and
MPI_Win_set_errhandler (for RMA windows). The MPI-1 routine
MPI_Errhandler_set may be used but its use is deprecated. The
predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error
values to be returned. Note that MPI does not guarentee that an MPI
program can continue past an error; however, MPI implementations will
attempt to continue whenever possible.
- No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
- Invalid communicator. A common error is to use a null
communicator in a call (not even allowed in MPI_Comm_rank ).
- Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not
identified by a specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK ).
- Invalid Info
