Description

This method lets a rank send an object to the other rank and receive an object from another rank in the same communicator. The default return is x.

sendrecv.replace(x,
  rank.dest = (comm.rank(.pbd_env$SPMD.CT$comm) + 1) %%
              comm.size(.pbd_env$SPMD.CT$comm),
  send.tag = .pbd_env$SPMD.CT$tag,
  rank.source = (comm.rank(.pbd_env$SPMD.CT$comm) - 1) %%
                comm.size(.pbd_env$SPMD.CT$comm),
  recv.tag = .pbd_env$SPMD.CT$tag,
  comm = .pbd_env$SPMD.CT$comm, status = .pbd_env$SPMD.CT$status)

Arguments

x

an object to be sent from a rank.

rank.dest

a rank of destination where x send to.

send.tag

a send tag number.

rank.source

a source rank where x sent from.

recv.tag

a receive tag number.

comm

a communicator number.

status

a status number.

Details

A corresponding sendrecv.replace() should be evoked at the corresponding ranks rank.dest and rank.source.

rank.dest and rank.source can be as.integer(NULL) to create a silent sendrecv operation which is more efficient than setting rank.dest and rank.source to be equal.

Warning: sendrecv.replace() is not safe for R since R is not a thread safe package that a dynamic returning object requires certain blocking or barrier at some where. The replaced object or memory address ‘MUST’ return correctly. This is almost equivalent to sendrecv().

Value

A x is returned by default.

Methods

For calling spmd.sendrecv.replace.*():

signature(x = "ANY")
signature(x = "integer")
signature(x = "numeric")
signature(x = "raw")
