MPI_IBARRIER(COMM, REQUEST, IERROR)         INTEGER COMM, REQUEST, IERROR

C++ Syntax

import mpi.*;
void MPI.COMM_WORLD.Barrier()

INPUT PARAMETER

comm Communicator (handle).

OUTPUT PARAMETER

request Request (handle, non-blocking only).
IERROR Fortran only: Error status (integer).

DESCRIPTION

An MPI barrier completes after all group members have entered the barrier.

WHEN COMMUNICATOR IS AN INTER-COMMUNICATOR

When the communicator is an inter-communicator, the barrier operation is performed across all processes in both groups. All processes in the first group may exit the barrier when all processes in the second group have entered the barrier.

ERRORS

Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in the last argument. C++ functions do not return errors. If the default error handler is set to MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS, then on error the C++ exception mechanism will be used to throw an MPI::Exception object.

Before the error value is returned, the current MPI error handler is called. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job, except for I/O function errors. The error handler may be changed with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler; the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values to be returned. Note that MPI does not guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.
