MPI_Ireduce_scatter - Combines values and scatters the results in a nonblocking way


int MPI_Ireduce_scatter(const void *sendbuf, void *recvbuf, const int recvcounts[], MPI_Datatype datatype, MPI_Op op, MPI_Comm comm, MPI_Request *request)


sendbuf - starting address of the send buffer (choice) recvcounts - non-negative integer array specifying the number of elements in result distributed to each process. Array must be identical on all calling processes. datatype - data type of elements of input buffer (handle) op - operation (handle) comm - communicator (handle)


recvbuf - starting address of the receive buffer (choice) request - communication request (handle)


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 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 call statement. All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype , MPI_Comm ) are of type INTEGER in Fortran.


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 possible. 11/9/2015 MPI_Ireduce_scatter(3)
