Subject: [OMPI users] Bug in OpenMPI-1.8.1: missing routines mpi_win_allocate_shared, mpi_win_shared_query called from Ftn95-code
From: Michael.Rachner_at_[hidden]

Dear developers of OpenMPI,

I found that when building an executable from a Fortran95-code on a LINUX cluster with OpenMPI-1.8.1 (and INTEL-14.0.2 Ftn-compiler)
the following two MPI-3 routines do not exist:

/dat/KERNEL/mpi3_sharedmem.f90:176: undefined reference to `mpi_win_allocate_shared_'
/dat/KERNEL/mpi3_sharedmem.f90:198: undefined reference to `mpi_win_shared_query_'

It is just these 2 routines, which are necessary for the MPI3- shared memory access of the same Fortran array from different processes on same node.
This is a breakthrough enabled by MPI-3, and for me the most important new feature of MPI-3,
because it allows saving much storage in the Ftn-code and reduces a lot of MPI-data transmission required otherwise.

Can you tell me, when these 2 important MPI-routines will be available?

Thank You
Michael Rachner
