HPL_reduce — Reduce operation.

Synopsis

#include "hpl.h"
int HPL_reduce( void * BUFFER, const int COUNT, const HPL_T_TYPE DTYPE, const HPL_T_OP OP, const int ROOT, MPI_Comm COMM );

Description

HPL_reduce performs a global reduce operation across all processes of a group. Note that the input buffer is used as workarray and in all processes but the accumulating process corrupting the original data.

Arguments

BUFFER (local input/output) void *
On entry, BUFFER points to the buffer to be reduced. On exit, and in process of rank ROOT this array contains the reduced data. This buffer is also used as workspace during the operation in the other processes of the group.
COUNT (global input) const int
On entry, COUNT indicates the number of entries in BUFFER. COUNT must be at least zero.
DTYPE (global input) const HPL_T_TYPE
On entry, DTYPE specifies the type of the buffers operands.
OP (global input) const HPL_T_OP
On entry, OP is a pointer to the local combine function.
ROOT (global input) const int
On entry, ROOT is the coordinate of the accumulating process.
COMM (global/local input) MPI_Comm
The MPI communicator identifying the process collection.
