Depends upon which one you are using. For example, allgather operates across
the entire job, so all procs in that jobid have to invoke it. On the other
hand, allgather_list only operates across the procs specified in the list,
so only they need to invoke it.
Xcast sends a message to all procs in the job, but none of those procs needs
to invoke anything - we just deliver the message to the specified RML tag on
each proc. Of course, we assume that there is a recv (typically
non-blocking) posted on that tag (or that it will be posted eventually). If
not, then the message will just sit in the local oob waiting to be delivered
- no harm done, it just gets ignored.
Hope that helps. Let me know if you need some variant as I am adding (not
reducing or changing) grpcomm capabilities on the tmp branch.
