Subject: [OMPI users] Issue with Profiling Fortran code
From: Nick Wright (nwright_at_[hidden])
Date: 2008-12-04 19:38:32


I am trying to use the PMPI interface with OPENMPI to profile a fortran

I have tried with 1.28 and 1.3rc1 with --enable-mpi-profile switched on.

The problem seems to be that if one eg. intercepts to call to
mpi_comm_rank_ (the fortran hook) then calls pmpi_comm_rank_ this then
calls MPI_Comm_rank (the C hook) not PMPI_Comm_rank as it should.

So if one wants to create a library that can profile C and Fortran codes
at the same time one ends up intercepting the mpi call twice. Which is
not desirable and not what should happen (and indeed doesn't happen in
other MPI implementations).

A simple example to illustrate is below. If somebody knows of a fix to
avoid this issue that would be great !



pmpi_test.c: mpicc pmpi_test.c -c

#include "mpi.h"
void mpi_comm_rank_(MPI_Comm *comm, int *rank, int *info) {
   printf("mpi_comm_rank call successfully intercepted\n");
int MPI_Comm_rank(MPI_Comm comm, int *rank) {
   printf("MPI_comm_rank call successfully intercepted\n");

hello_mpi.f: mpif77 hello_mpi.f pmpi_test.o

       program hello
        implicit none
        include 'mpif.h'
        integer ierr
        integer myid,nprocs
        character*24 fdate,host
        call MPI_Init( ierr )
       call mpi_comm_rank(MPI_COMM_WORLD, myid, ierr )
       call mpi_comm_size(MPI_COMM_WORLD , nprocs, ierr )
       call getenv('HOST',host)
       write (*,*) 'Hello World from proc',myid,' out of',nprocs,host
       call mpi_finalize(ierr)
