Name

C]MPI_Cart_mapR] - Maps process to Cartesian topology information.

Syntax

C Syntax



C]#include <mpi.h>int MPI_Cart_map(MPI_Comm comm, int ndims, const int dims[], const int periods[], int *newrank)R]Fortran Syntax



C]USE MPI! or the older form: INCLUDE [aq]mpif.h[aq]MPI_CART_MAP(COMM, NDIMS, DIMS, PERIODS, NEWRANK, IERROR) INTEGER COMM, NDIMS, DIMS(*), NEWRANK, IERROR LOGICAL PERIODS(*)R]Fortran 2008 Syntax



C]USE mpi_f08MPI_Cart_map(comm, ndims, dims, periods, newrank, ierror) TYPE(MPI_Comm), INTENT(IN) :: comm INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: ndims, dims(ndims) LOGICAL, INTENT(IN) :: periods(ndims) INTEGER, INTENT(OUT) :: newrank INTEGER, OPTIONAL, INTENT(OUT) :: ierrorR]Input Parameters

[bu]
C]commR] : Input communicator (handle).
[bu]
C]ndimsR] : Number of dimensions of Cartesian structure (integer).
[bu]
C]dimsR] : Integer array of size ndims specifying the number of processes in each coordinate direction.
[bu]
C]periodsR] : Logical array of size ndims specifying the periodicity specification in each coordinate direction.

Output Parameters

[bu]
C]newrankR] : Reordered rank of the calling process; C]MPI_UNDEFINEDR] if calling process does not belong to grid (integer).
[bu]
C]IERRORR] : Fortran only: Error status (integer).

Description

C]MPI_Cart_mapR] and C]MPI_Graph_mapR] can be used to implement all other topology functions. In general they will not be called by the user directly, unless he or she is creating additional virtual topology capability other than that provided by MPI. C]MPI_Cart_mapR] computes an [lq]optimal[rq] placement for the calling process on the physical machine. A possible implementation of this function is to always return the rank of the calling process, that is, not to perform any reordering.

Errors

Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in the last argument. 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 C]MPI_Comm_set_errhandlerR]; the predefined error handler C]MPI_ERRORS_RETURNR] 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.
