MPI_T_pvar_handle_alloc, MPI_T_pvar_handle_free - Allocate/free MPI performance variable handles

17.2.363.1. SYNTAX

17.2.363.1.1. C Syntax

#include <mpi.h>

int MPI_T_pvar_handle_alloc(int session, int pvar_index, void *obj_handle,
                            MPI_T_pvar_handle *handle, int *count)

int MPI_T_pvar_handle_free(int session, MPI_T_pvar_handle *handle)

17.2.363.2. DESCRIPTION

MPI_T_pvar_handle_alloc binds the performance variable specified in pvar_index to the MPI object specified in obj_handle in the session identified by the parameter session. The object is passed in the argument obj_handle as an address to a local variable that stores the object’s handle. If MPI_T_pvar_get_info returns MPI_T_BIND_NO_OBJECT as the binding for the variable the obj_handle argument is ignored. The handle allocated to reference the variable is returned in the argument handle. Upon successful return, count contains the number of elements (of the datatype returned by a previous MPI_T_pvar_get_info call) used to represent this variable.

The value of pvar_index should be in the range 0 to num_pvar - 1, where num_pvar is the number of available performance variables as determined from a prior call to MPI_T_pvar_get_num. The type of the MPI object it references must be consistent with the type returned in the bind argument in a prior call to MPI_T_pvar_get_info.

MPI_T_pvar_handle_free frees a handle allocated by MPI_T_pvar_handle_alloc and sets the handle argument to MPI_T_PVAR_HANDLE_NULL.

17.2.363.3. ERRORS

MPI_T_pvar_handle_alloc will fail if:

  • MPI_T_ERR_NOT_INITIALIZED: The MPI Tools interface not initialized

  • MPI_T_ERR_INVALID_INDEX: The performance variable index is invalid

  • MPI_T_ERR_OUT_OF_HANDLES: No more handles available

MPI_T_pvar_handle_free will fail if:

  • MPI_T_ERR_NOT_INITIALIZED: The MPI Tools interface not initialized

  • MPI_T_ERR_INVALID_HANDLE: The handle is invalid or the handle argument passed in is not associated with the session argument
