Generally, if you have an array with x elements of a given type (e.g. MPI_Int) you should use x as your SENDCOUNT parameter. Providing the name of the SEND buffer just determine the start address of the buffer and you should expilicitly specify how many elements should be sent.
Tu be sure, execute some sample programs and check the behavior.
