MPI_Open_port(3) MPI MPI_Open_port(3)

MPI_Open_port - Establish an address that can be used to establish connections between groups of MPI processes

int MPI_Open_port(MPI_Info info, char *port_name)

info
- implementation-specific information on how to establish a port for MPI_Comm_accept (handle)

port_name
- newly established port (string)

MPI copies a system-supplied port name into port_name . port_name identifies the newly opened port and can be used by a client to contact the server. The maximum size string that may be supplied by the system is MPI_MAX_PORT_NAME .

ip_port
- Value contains IP port number at which to establish a port.
ip_address
- Value contains IP address at which to establish a port. If the address is not a valid IP address of the host on which the MPI_OPEN_PORT call is made, the results are undefined.

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.
MPI_SUCCESS
- No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
