When the master sends out the task, it assign a distinct task number ID to 
the task. 

When the worker receive the task, it  still use the task's assigned ID as task tag to send it to master. 

Any help is appreciated.

how does the master receive results from the workers? if a worker is sending multiple task results, how does the master knows what the message tags are ahead of time?

Dear All : 

I designed a master-worker framework, in which the master can schedule
multiple tasks (numTaskPerWorkerNode) to each worker and then collects results from workers.

if the numTaskPerWorkerNode = 1, it works well. 

But, if numTaskPerWorkerNode > 1, the master cannot get the results from workers. 

But, the workers can get the tasks from master. 

why ?

I have used different taskTag to distinguish the tasks, but still does not work.

Any help is appreciated.
