Subject: [OMPI users] Pinned memory
From: Gabriele Fatigati (g.fatigati_at_[hidden])

Dear OpenMPI Developer,
i have a doubt regards mpi_leave_pinned parameter. Suppose i have a simple for:

for( int i=0; i< 100; i++)
  MPI_Reduce(a, b, .......)

My question is: if i set mpi_leave_pinned= 1, buffer memories are
pinned in the entire process, or just into the for cycle?

When the cycle is finished, a and b memories, are unregistrered?

Thanks in advance.
