Intel MPI nameserver

I'm able to find the `I_MPI_HYDRA_NAMESERVER` environment variable, but I'm not succeeding in using it. Do I need to start a server daemon?

 

 

 

  char
    port_name[] = "exampleport",
    service_name[] = "exampleservice";
  if (world_p==0) {
    MPI_Comm intercomm;
    MPI_Publish_name( service_name, MPI_INFO_NULL, port_name );
    printf("Name published\n");
    MPI_Unpublish_name( service_name, MPI_INFO_NULL, port_name );
  } else {
    MPI_Lookup_name( service_name,MPI_INFO_NULL,port_name );
  }

 

 

 

Gives:

 

 

 

[c210-008 c:3] export I_MPI_HYDRA_NAMESERVER=`hostname`:8000
[c210-008 c:4] make publishbug && mpiexec.hydra -n 2 publishbug

Hi Victor,

 

Thanks for reaching us.

>> Do I need to start a server daemon?

-- Yes, We need to start hydra nameserver by using the below command:

~$ hydra_nameserver &

--Instead of directly giving port number use MPI_Open_port() to get the port number and use that in MPI_Publish_name()

--Later You can use the command below :

~$ make publishbug && I_MPI_HYDRA_NAMESERVER=`hostname` mpiexec.hydra -n 2 publishbug

 

For a sample code of client and server refer to client.cpp and server.cpp in the below Github repository:

Thanks & Regards

Santosh
