Parallel processing in ms mpi fortran RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My dll fortran program contsists of a master problem and several subproblems. The master problem sends and receives data to and from subproblems in sequence. To allow this to take place in parallel, I thought of ms mpi, where master and subproblems are located each on a separate i5 PC running Windows 7, connected by Ethernet. I have three questions in this respect:

    a-  What program type ms mpi assumes for each subproblem? Is it a dll to be called or an exe to be run from the master program?

    b- Will ms mpi consider each subproblem program as a process?

    c- If yes, how ms mpi map the rank of each process to a specific subproblem? 

    Best regards.
