Hello,

What are the changes between openMPI 1.4.1 and 1.5.1 about MPI2 service of publishing name.
I have 2 programs which connect them via MPI_Publish_name and MPI_Lookup_name subroutines and ompi-server.
That's OK with 1.4.1 version , but I have a deadlock with 1.5.1 version inside the subroutine MPI_Publish_name and MPI_Lookup_name.

best
Bernard

That's my connection subroutine:


MPI_Comm remoteConnect(int myrank, int *srv, char *port_name, char* service)
{
  int clt=0;
  MPI_Request request; /* requete pour communication non bloquante */
  MPI_Comm gcom;
  MPI_Status status; 
  char   port_name_clt[MPI_MAX_PORT_NAME]; 

  if( service == NULL ) service = defaultService;

  /* only process of rank null can publish name */
  MPI_Barrier(MPI_COMM_WORLD);

  /* A lookup for an unpublished service generate an error */
  MPI_Errhandler_set(MPI_COMM_WORLD, MPI_ERRORS_RETURN);
  if( myrank == 0 ){
    /* Try to be a server. If there service is already published, try to be a cient */
    MPI_Open_port(MPI_INFO_NULL, port_name); 
    printf("[%d] Publish name\n",myrank);
    if ( MPI_Publish_name(service, MPI_INFO_NULL, port_name) == MPI_SUCCESS )  {
      *srv = 1;
      printf("[%d] service %s available at %s\n",myrank,service,port_name);
    }
    else if ( MPI_Lookup_name(service, MPI_INFO_NULL, port_name_clt) == MPI_SUCCESS ){
      MPI_Close_port( port_name ); 
      clt = 1;
    }
    else
      /* Throw exception */
      printf("[%d] Error\n",myrank);
  }
  else{
    /* Waiting rank 0 publish name */
    sleep(1);
    printf("[%d] Lookup name\n",myrank);
    if ( MPI_Lookup_name(service, MPI_INFO_NULL, port_name_clt) == MPI_SUCCESS ){
      clt = 1;
    }
    else
      /* Throw exception */
      ;
  }
  MPI_Errhandler_set(MPI_COMM_WORLD, MPI_ERRORS_ARE_FATAL);
  
  MPI_Bcast(srv,1,MPI_INT,0,MPI_COMM_WORLD);

  if ( *srv )
    /* I am the Master */
    MPI_Comm_accept( port_name, MPI_INFO_NULL, 0, MPI_COMM_WORLD, &gcom );
  else{
    /*  Connect to service SERVER, get the inter-communicator server*/
    MPI_Errhandler_set(MPI_COMM_WORLD, MPI_ERRORS_RETURN);
    if ( MPI_Comm_connect(port_name_clt, MPI_INFO_NULL, 0, MPI_COMM_WORLD, &gcom )  == MPI_SUCCESS )
      printf("[%d] I get the connection with %s at %s !\n",myrank, service, port_name_clt);
    MPI_Errhandler_set(MPI_COMM_WORLD, MPI_ERRORS_ARE_FATAL);
  }

  if(myrank != 0) *srv = 0;

  return gcom;

}
