 Fixing Probe for Multi-Threaded MPI Applications

(Vol , Nr. 674, In , presented in , pages , Indiana University Computer Science, ISSN: , ISBN: , Jan. 2009)


This report proposes a new way to handle probing for messages in a threaded environment for MPI. We propose a thread-safe probe, calles mprobe which returns a message handle for later reception with mrecv to the user. This proposal serves as discussion ground for possible extensions to MPI.
