Subject: [OMPI users] MPI_Wait: wait for ever by using Issend using larger data-strings
From: dbbmyx-franzxaver_at_[hidden]
Date: 2010-09-06 06:03:20


first of all sorry that I write a new thread. I already wrote a messge about "Problem with the receive buffer size?". But I had some problems with my email-provider and the mailinglist. (I do not often use mailing lists).

Here is the link to my old Message:

I wrote a short programm that show my problem. (The coding ist very ugly. sorry). It send a serialized object(this time a very simple) as a string to the other process.

The problem is that it never gets return of the wait-operation when I using a more data.
If you set the countR to 996 it waits forever. With 995 it works.
Can anyone help me?
