MPI_Abort - Terminates MPI execution environment.
#include <mpi.h> int MPI_Abort(MPI_Comm comm, int errorcode)
INCLUDE 'mpif.h' MPI_ABORT(COMM, ERRORCODE, IERROR) INTEGER COMM, ERRORCODE, IERROR
#include <mpi.h> void Comm::Abort(int errorcode)
comm Communicator of tasks to abort. errorcode Error code to return to invoking environment.
IERROR Fortran only: Error status (integer).
This routine makes a "best attempt" to abort all tasks in the group of comm. This function does not require that the invoking environment take any action with the error code. However, a UNIX or POSIX environment should handle this as a return errorcode from the main program or an abort (errorcode). The Open MPI implementation terminates all processes in all tasks that contain a process in comm, and the error code is not returned to the invoking environment. Note: All associated processes are sent a SIGTERM.
Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in the last argument. C++ functions do not return errors. If the default error handler is set to MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS, then on error the C++ exception mechanism will be used to throw an MPI:Exception object. Before the error value is returned, the current MPI error handler is called. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job, except for I/O function errors. The error handler may be changed with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler; the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values to be returned. Note that MPI does not guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.
