OpenMPI Sample Applications

Sample MPI applications provided both as a trivial primer to MPI as well as simple tests to ensure that your OpenMPI installation is working properly.

Examples

There are two MPI examples, each using one of six different MPI interfaces:

Additionally, there's one further example application, but this one only uses the MPI C bindings:

Build Examples

Download examples.

The Makefile in this directory will build the examples for the supported languages (e.g., if you do not have the Fortran "use mpi" bindings compiled as part of OpenMPI, those examples will be skipped).

The Makefile assumes that the wrapper compilers mpicc, mpic++, and mpifort are in your path.

Although the Makefile is tailored for OpenMPI (e.g., it checks the mpi_info command to see if you have support for C++, mpif.h, use mpi, and use mpi_f08 F90), all of the example programs are pure MPI, and therefore not specific to OpenMPI. Hence, you can use a different MPI implementation to compile and run these programs if you wish.
