17.2.246.4. DESCRIPTION

The non-blocking send-receive operations combine in one call the sending of a message to one destination and the receiving of another message, from another process. The two (source and destination) are possibly the same. This operation is useful for executing a shift operation across a chain of processes. The send-receive operation can be used in conjunction with the functions described in the “Process Topologies” chapter of the MPI Standard in order to perform shifts on various logical topologies.

A message sent by a send-receive operation can be received by a regular receive operation or probed by a probe operation; a send-receive operation can receive a message sent by a regular send operation.

MPI_Isendrecv executes a non-blocking send and receive operation. Both send and receive use the same communicator, but possibly different tags. The send buffer and receive buffers must be disjoint, and may have different lengths and datatypes.

A non-blocking send-receive request can be determined to be completed by calling the MPI_Wait, MPI_Waitany, MPI_Test, or MPI_Testany with the request returned by this function.

17.2.246.5. 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 MPI_Comm_set_errhandler; the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN 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.
