MPITASK(1)					     LAM COMMANDS					   MPITASK(1)

NAME
mpitask - Monitor MPI processes under LAM.
SYNTAX
mpitask [-cdh] [-gps] [<nodes>] [<processes>]
OPTIONS
-c Print communicator descriptions. See "Communicators". -d Print datatype descriptions. See "Datatypes". -gps Print process information in GPS format. -h Print useful information on this command. The -c and -d options are mutually exclusive.
DESCRIPTION
The mpitask command displays information on processes which are using MPI. One line is printed for each re- ported MPI process. With no processes or nodes explicitly specified on the command line, all MPI processes on all nodes are reported. % mpitask TASK (G/L) FUNCTION PEER|ROOT TAG COMM COUNT DATATYPE 0/0 trivial Ssend 1/1 123 WORLD 64 INT 1/1 trivial Recv 0/0 456 WORLD 64 INT For each process mpitask normally prints the following information: TASK an identification of the process - If the process is currently communicating, a `/' followed by the process's rank within the current communicator is also displayed. The executable name, if avail- able, is also displayed. See "MPI Process Identification". FUNCTION an abbreviated form of the function name if the process is blocked inside an MPI function - Other- wise one of the following execution states is printed: <running> free to run on the underlying OS <paused> blocked on lam_kpause(2) <stopped> stopped by the LAM signal, LAM_SIGARREST - See doom(1). <blocked> blocked in a LAM function - In general this should be a transitory state. Further infor- mation on a LAM process's state can be obtained with state(1). PEER|ROOT the source or destination of a point-to-point communication or the root process of certain collec- tive communications, followed by a '/' and the process's rank within the current communicator - TAG the message tag, if any, which was specified as a parameter to the current MPI function COMM the communicator ID, if any, which was specified as a parameter to the current MPI function - Commu- nicators used in collective calls are displayed with a * suffix. Further information on the commu- nicator may be obtained with the -c option. COUNT the element count, if any, which was specified as a parameter to the current MPI function DATATYPE the element datatype, if any, which was specified as a parameter to the current MPI function - For intrinsic datatypes, a shortened version of the datatype name is displayed. For derived datatypes, a datatype label is displayed. Further information on the datatype may be obtained with the -d op- tion. MPI Process Identification By default, MPI processes are identified by their rank in MPI_COMM_WORLD. We refer to this rank more concise- ly as the "global" rank (G). The rank within the currently employed communicator is referred to as the "lo- cal" rank (L). Since processes may be dynamically spawned (see MPIL_Spawn(2)) and since multiple concurrent MPI applications are allowed, it is possible for multiple MPI_COMM_WORLD communicators to coexist. In these situations, the global rank is no longer globally unique and the identification is ambiguous. Thus, LAM provides an alternate way of identifying MPI processes, the GPS (Global Positioning System). A process's GPS consists of the nodeid the process is running on and the process's LAM index on that node. It is displayed in mpitask as the pair n<node>,i<index>. If the -gps option is given then the GPS is substituted for the global rank (G). Communicators If the -c option is given then information is no longer displayed in the horizontal format described above. Instead for each selected process currently using a communicator, the information from the TASK column, de- scribed above, is given followed by an expanded description of the communicator. This description includes the size of the communicator group(s) and the global identifiers of all members of the group(s). Datatypes If the -d option is given then information is no longer displayed in the horizontal format described above. Instead for each selected process currently using a communicator, the information from the TASK column, de- scribed above, is given followed by the datatype's type map.
EXAMPLES
mpitask Display the status of all MPI processes on all nodes. mpitask -c n0 i9 Display the communicator (if any) of process index 9 on node 0.
DIAGNOSTICS
If no MPI processes are found, only the title line is displayed.
BUGS
Sometimes processes may be shown as blocked inside a non-blocking MPI function. This occurs when the process is blocked inside the MPI function on some internal LAM event. Such states are highly transitory.
