I wanted to ask some questions about things I am having trouble understanding.
As far as my understanding of
MPI_INIT function, I assumed MPI_INIT typically procedure resources
required including the sockets. But now as I understand from the
documentation that openMPI only allocated socket when the process
has to send a message to a peer. If some one could let me where
exactly in the code this is happening I would appreciate a lot. I
guess this is happening in ORTE layer so I am spending time looking
at it. But if some one could let me in which function this is
happening it will help me a lot.
Also I think most of the MPI
implementation embed source and destination address with the communication
protocol. Am I right to assume openMPI does the same thing. Is this also happening in the ORTE layer.
