MPI_DIST_GRAPH_CREATE returns a handle to a new communicator to which the distributed graph topology information is attached.
int MPI_Dist_graph_create(MPI_Comm comm_old, int n, const int sources,
const int degrees, const int destinations,
const int weights,
MPI_Info info, int reorder, MPI_Comm * comm_dist_graph)
- input communicator (handle)
- number of source nodes for which this process specifies edges
- array containing the n source nodes for which this process
specifies edges (array of non-negative integers)
- array specifying the number of destinations for each source node
in the source node array (array of non-negative integers)
- destination nodes for the source nodes in the source node
array (array of non-negative integers)
- weights for source to destination edges (array of non-negative
integers or MPI_UNWEIGHTED)
- hints on optimization and interpretation of weights (handle)
- the process may be reordered (true) or not (false) (logical)
- communicator with distributed graph topology added (handle)
Thread and Interrupt Safety
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.
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
All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype, MPI_Comm) are of type INTEGER
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
- No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
- Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not
identified by a specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK).
- Other error; use MPI_Error_string to get more information
about this error code.
