mpi.bcast.Robj(obj = NULL, rank = 0, comm = 1)
mpi.bcast.Robj2slave(obj, comm = 1, all = FALSE)
mpi.bcast.Rfun2slave(comm = 1)
mpi.bcast.data2slave(obj, comm = 1, buffunit = 100)

Arguments

obj

an R object to be transmitted from the sender

rank

the sender.

comm

a communicator number.

all

a logical. If TRUE, all R objects on master are transmitted to slaves.

buffunit

a buffer unit number.

Details

mpi.bcast.Robj is an extension of mpi.bcast for moving a general R object around from a sender to everyone. mpi.bcast.Robj2slave does an R object transmission from master to all slaves unless all=TRUE in which case, all master's objects with the global enviroment are transmitted to all slavers.

mpi.bcast.data2slave transfers data (a double vector or a matrix) natively without (un)serilization. It should be used with a huge vector or matrix. It results less memory usage and faster transmission. Notice that data with missing values (NA) are allowed.

Value

mpi.bcast.Robj returns no value for the sender and the transmitted one for others. mpi.bcast.Robj2slave returns no value for the master and the transmitted R object along its name on slaves. mpi.bcast.Rfun2slave transmits all master's functions to slaves and returns no value. mpi.bcast.data2slave transmits a double vector or a matrix to slaves and returns no value.
