Kindly discard below email. I have corrected the mistakes after running the program in parallel debug mode. Thanks.

Hi

I am very new to Open MPI. I have made a small program that computes the sum of an array, by splitting array into pieces equal to the number of processes. The problem in my program is that each process is computing right sum of its share of the array, but the individually computed sums are not summed by MPI_reduce function. I tried my best to solve and also consulted the Open MPI manual, but there is still something that I might be missing. I would be grateful for any kind of guidance. Below is the program I made:

```
#include "mpi.h"
#include <stdio.h>
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
int n, rank, nrofProcs, i;
int sum, ans;
// 0,1,2, 3,4,5, 6,7,8, 9
int myarr[] = {1,5,9, 2,8,3, 7,4,6, 10};
MPI_Init(&argc, &argv);
MPI_Comm_size(MPI_COMM_WORLD, &nrofProcs);
MPI_Comm_rank(MPI_COMM_WORLD, &rank);
n = 10;
MPI_Bcast(&n, 1, MPI_INT, 0, MPI_COMM_WORLD);
sum = 0.0;
int remaining = n % nrofProcs;
int lower =rank*(n/nrofProcs);
int upper = (lower+(n/nrofProcs))-1;
for (i = lower; i <= upper; i++)
{
sum = sum + myarr[i];
}
if(rank==nrofProcs-1)
{
while(i<=remaining)
{
sum = sum + myarr[i];
i++;
}
}
/* (PROBLEM IS HERE, IT IS NOT COMBINING "sums") */
MPI_Reduce(&sum, &ans, 1, MPI_INT, MPI_SUM, 0, MPI_COMM_WORLD);
// if (rank == 0)
printf( "rank: %d, Sum ans: %d\n", rank, sum);
/* shut down MPI */
MPI_Finalize();
return 0;
}
Output:
rank: 2, Sum ans: 17
rank: 1, Sum ans: 13
rank: 0, Sum ans: 15
```

(Output should be `rank: 0, Sum ans: 55`

)
