Subject: [OMPI users] Does MPI_Finalize() behaves like MPI_Barrier() ?

Hello, Traduzir do: português Digite um texto ou endereço de um site ou traduza um documento. Cancelar Tradução do português para inglês I have three processes that communicate with each other. The first process creates the other two processes (using MPI_Comm_spaw (...)). When one of the processes performs MPI_Finalize (), it continues in execution, stoppedin MPI_Finalize function () (in busy waiting, ie, using CPU) and just executes the next instruction only when the other two processes run MPI_Finalize (). It seems that MPI_Finalize () behaves like MPI_Barrier (). This behavior only occurs when processes communicate with each other (when, for example, use MPI_Send,  MPI_Isend, MPI_Bsend. or MPI_Ssend). I would like to know if we can avoid this behavior of MPI_Finalize when processes communicate with each other. Here there are the codes: Process Master: #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <string.h> #include <mpi.h> int main(int argc, char** argv) {     int i;     char other[200];     getcwd(other, 199);     strcat(other, "/otherProcess");     MPI_Init(&argc, &argv);     MPI_Comm com;     MPI_Status s;        MPI_Comm_spawn(other, MPI_ARGV_NULL, 2, MPI_INFO_NULL, 0, MPI_COMM_WORLD, &com, MPI_ERRCODES_IGNORE);     MPI_Recv(&i, 1, MPI_INT, 0, 0, com, &s);     sleep(15); // Make the otherProcess wait the Master process in MPI_Finalize().     MPI_Finalize();     return 0; } Other Process (process Master calls otherProcess): #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <mpi.h> int main(int argc, char * argv[]) {     int dest;     MPI_Comm parent;     MPI_Init(&argc, &argv);     MPI_Comm_get_parent(&parent);     MPI_Send(&dest, 1, MPI_INT, 0, 0, parent); // If this line is removed, the process doesn't stop in MPI_Finalize.     printf("Before MPI_Finalize\n");     MPI_Finalize();  // The process stay here waiting all process execute MPI_Finalize.     printf("After MPI_Finalize\n");     return 0; } I've tried several things but nothing worked. I don't want that otherProcess stay waiting in MPI_Finalize(). Could someone help-me? Thanks.
