Constants - Meaning of MPI's defined constants

DATA TYPES

Note that the Fortran types should only be used in Fortran programs, and the C types should only be used in C programs. For example, it is in error to use MPI_INT for a Fortran INTEGER. Datatypes are of type MPI_Datatype in C, type INTEGER in Fortran, and Type(MPI_Datatype) in Fortran08

MPI Type classes used with routines to return Fortran types with defined precision and range MPI_TYPECLASS_REAL - REAL
 
MPI_TYPECLASS_INTEGER
- INTEGER
 
MPI_TYPECLASS_COMPLEX
- COMPLEX
 
 

MPI DARRAY AND SUBARRAY VALUES

These values are used to create a datatype with the DARRAY and SUBARRAY constructors. MPI_ORDER_C - Row-major order (as used by C)
MPI_ORDER_FORTRAN
- Column-major order (as used by Fortran)
MPI_DISTRIBUTE_BLOCK
- Block distribution
MPI_DISTRIBUTE_CYCLIC
- Cyclic distribution
MPI_DISTRIBUTE_NONE
- This dimension is not distributed
MPI_DISTRIBUTE_DFLT_DARG
- Use the default distribution
 

COMMUNICATORS

Communicators are of type MPI_Comm in C, INTEGER in Fortran, and Type(MPI_Comm) in Fortran08 MPI_COMM_WORLD - Contains all of the processes
MPI_COMM_SELF
- Contains only the calling process
 

KIND OF COMMUNICATOR FOR 'MPI_COMM_SPLIT_TYPE'

MPI_COMM_TYPE_SHARED - All processes that can share memory are grouped into the same communicator.
 

GROUPS

Groups are of type MPI_Group in C, INTEGER in Fortran, and Type(MPI_Group) in Fortran08
 
MPI_GROUP_EMPTY - A group containing no members.
 

RESULTS OF THE COMPARE OPERATIONS ON GROUPS AND COMMUNICATORS

MPI_IDENT - Identical
MPI_CONGRUENT
- (only for MPI_COMM_COMPARE ) The groups are identical
MPI_SIMILAR
- Same members, but in a different order
MPI_UNEQUAL
- Different
 
 

COLLECTIVE OPERATIONS

The collective combination operations (e.g., MPI_REDUCE , MPI_ALLREDUCE , MPI_REDUCE_SCATTER , and MPI_SCAN ) take a combination operation. This operation is of type MPI_Op in C and of type INTEGER in Fortran. The predefined operations are
 
MPI_MAX - return the maximum
MPI_MIN
- return the minumum
MPI_SUM
- return the sum
MPI_PROD
- return the product
MPI_LAND
- return the logical and
MPI_BAND
- return the bitwise and
MPI_LOR
- return the logical or
MPI_BOR
- return the bitwise of
MPI_LXOR
- return the logical exclusive or
MPI_BXOR
- return the bitwise exclusive or
MPI_MINLOC
- return the minimum and the location (actually, the value of the second element of the structure where the minimum of the first is found)
MPI_MAXLOC
- return the maximum and the location
MPI_REPLACE
- replace b with a
MPI_NO_OP
- perform no operation
 

NOTES ON COLLECTIVE OPERATIONS

The reduction functions ( MPI_Op ) do not return an error value. As a result, if the functions detect an error, all they can do is either call MPI_Abort or silently skip the problem. Thus, if you change the error handler from MPI_ERRORS_ARE_FATAL to something else, for example, MPI_ERRORS_RETURN , then no error may be indicated.
 
The reason for this is the performance problems in ensuring that all collective routines return the same error value.
 
Note that not all datatypes are valid for these functions. For example, MPI_COMPLEX is not valid for MPI_MAX and MPI_MIN . In addition, the MPI 1.1 standard did not include the C types MPI_CHAR and MPI_UNSIGNED_CHAR among the lists of arithmetic types for operations like MPI_SUM . However, since the C type char is an integer type (like short ), it should have been included. The MPI Forum will probably include char and unsigned char as a clarification to MPI 1.1; until then, users are advised that MPI implementations may not accept MPI_CHAR and MPI_UNSIGNED_CHAR as valid datatypes for MPI_SUM , MPI_PROD , etc. MPICH does allow these datatypes.
