I assume you're doing more than just allocate/mpi_recv/deallocate. :-)

I don't know what A(i) is, so it's hard to say whether this is correct or not.

I don't know.

Can you make a small program that reproduces the problem?

> Besides, the reasonable why I did not choose mpi_gatherv is that the QRECS will put into YVAR in a non-consecutive way. for instance, if I have 4 processors, the first element in YVAR is from rank 0, second from rank 1 ......fourth from rank 3, and then fifth from rank 0 again, sixth from rank 1 again....... But I will try your suggestion.

Depending on how big the arrays are, it may still be faster/simpler to gather(v) to a single array and copy to the final array. Shrug. It depends on what your program is doing, and whether that is wort it to you.

To be clear: either way should work fine; there may or may not be coding and/or performance implications of each.
