I also forgot to add that one of the bonus requirements for my project is to be able to use it with whatever number of slave nodes, which i think makes the whole deal a lot more complicated.
Hey guys,I need to write an implementation of a 4D array with a variable 4th dimension based on where in 3D you are. So it's basically like a normal rectangular prism, except for each unit it might have a variable number of values. The program is also supposed to communicate by sending ghost nodes between each slice, in order for the actual data-modifying code to work. The data-modifying code is to be added by others depending on what they need to do with this 4d array.So what I am really asking is how does MPI work when you have different objects on different computers and you try sending stuff between the objects?Just some explanations for my code, which is attached, in case you can give some code-specific tips:
- Nx2, Nz2, Ny2 are the lengths of the big prism
- DOFArr holds how many values there will be for each space in 3D, by transforming the 3D coordinates into 1D this way: index of DOFArr=i+Nx*j+Nx*Ny*k
- So the way i was thinking of doing is for the master to get the big array, and split into relatively equal parts and send each part to a node. The node would then do whatever it had to do, send ghost nodes to its neighbors, maybe do whatever it had to do again and in the end it would send everything back to the master node, which would take the pieces of array and put them together.I am also a bit confused with when do you have to call MPI_Finaliza(). I mean, for it to run, the program required me to put it into the constructor, and if I call print() at the and of the constructor, it would tell me this:job aborted:rank: node: exit code[: error message]0: C7June2010: 1231: C7June2010: -1073740777: process 1 exited without calling finalize2: C7June2010: -1073740777: process 2 exited without calling finalizeIf i would place it after Finalize() nothing would show when i run the exe.I just finished grade 12, and got a summer job at a research lab, and this is my project. Thanks a lot for your help.Alex
