MPI_Group_range_incl — Creates a new group from ranges of ranks in an existing group. SYNTAX C Syntax

MPI_Group_range_incl(group, n, ranges, newgroup, ierror)

     TYPE(MPI_Group), INTENT(OUT) :: newgroup

  • group: Group (handle).

  • n: Number of triplets in array ranges (integer).

  • ranges: A one-dimensional array of integer triplets, of the form (first rank, last rank, stride) indicating ranks in group or processes to be included in newgroup. OUTPUT PARAMETERS

  • newgroup: New group derived from above, in the order defined by ranges (handle).

  • ierror: Fortran only: Error status (integer). DESCRIPTION

If ranges consist of the triplets

(first1, last1, stride1), ..., (firstn, lastn, striden)

then newgroup consists of the sequence of processes in group with ranks

first(1), first(1) + stride(1),..., first(1) + ---------------- stride(1),...

first(n), first(n) + stride(n),..., first(n) + ---------------- stride(n).

Each computed rank must be a valid rank in group and all computed ranks must be distinct, or else the program is erroneous. Note that we may have first(i) > last(i), and stride(i) may be negative, but cannot be zero.

The functionality of this routine is specified to be equivalent to expanding the array of ranges to an array of the included ranks and passing the resulting array of ranks and other arguments to MPI_Group_incl. A call to MPI_Group_incl is equivalent to a call to MPI_Group_range_incl with each rank i in ranks replaced by the triplet (i,i,1) in the argument ranges. NOTE

This implementation does not currently check to see that the list of ranges to include are valid ranks in the group. ERRORS

Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the return result of the function and Fortran routines in the last argument.

Before the error value is returned, the current MPI error handler associated with the communication object (e.g., communicator, window, file) is called. If no communication object is associated with the MPI call, then the call is considered attached to MPI_COMM_SELF and will call the associated MPI error handler. When MPI_COMM_SELF is not initialized (i.e., before MPI_Init/MPI_Init_thread, after MPI_Finalize, or when using the Sessions Model exclusively) the error raises the initial error handler. The initial error handler can be changed by calling MPI_Comm_set_errhandler on MPI_COMM_SELF when using the World model, or the mpi_initial_errhandler CLI argument to mpiexec or info key to MPI_Comm_spawn/MPI_Comm_spawn_multiple. If no other appropriate error handler has been set, then the MPI_ERRORS_RETURN error handler is called for MPI I/O functions and the MPI_ERRORS_ABORT error handler is called for all other MPI functions.

Open MPI includes three predefined error handlers that can be used:

  • MPI_ERRORS_ARE_FATAL Causes the program to abort all connected MPI processes.

  • MPI_ERRORS_ABORT An error handler that can be invoked on a communicator, window, file, or session. When called on a communicator, it acts as if MPI_Abort was called on that communicator. If called on a window or file, acts as if MPI_Abort was called on a communicator containing the group of processes in the corresponding window or file. If called on a session, aborts only the local process.

  • MPI_ERRORS_RETURN Returns an error code to the application.

MPI applications can also implement their own error handlers by calling:

Note that MPI does not guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.
