MPI_Ibarrier - Notifies the process that it has reached the barrier and returns
int MPI_Ibarrier(MPI_Comm comm, MPI_Request *request)
- - communicator (handle)
- - communication request (handle)
MPI_Ibarrier is a nonblocking version of MPI_barrier. By calling MPI_Ibarrier, a
process notifies that it has reached the barrier. The call returns
immediately, independent of whether other processes have called MPI_Ibarrier.
The usual barrier semantics are enforced at the corresponding completion
operation (test or wait), which in the intra-communicator case will complete
only after all other processes in the communicator have called MPI_Ibarrier.
In the intercommunicator case, it will complete when all processes in the
remote group have called MPI_Ibarrier.
This routine is thread-safe. This means that this routine may be safely used by
multiple threads without the need for any user-provided thread locks. However,
the routine is not interrupt safe. Typically, this is due to the use of memory
allocation routines such as malloc
or other non-MPICH runtime routines
that are themselves not interrupt-safe.
All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME
have an additional argument ierr
at the end of the argument list.
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
All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype
) are of type
All MPI routines (except MPI_Wtime
) 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 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
guarentee that an MPI program can continue past an error; however,
MPI implementations will attempt to continue whenever possible.
