NAME

       MPI_Lookup_name - Finds port associated with a service name

SYNTAX

C Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       int MPI_Lookup_name(char *service_name, MPI_Info info,
            char *port_name)

Fortran Syntax

       INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
       MPI_LOOKUP_NAME(SERVICE_NAME, INFO, PORT_NAME, IERROR)
            CHARACTER*(*)  SERVICE_NAME, PORT_NAME
            INTEGER        INFO, IERROR

C++ Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       void MPI::Lookup_name(const char *service_name, const MPI::Info& info,
            char* port_name)

INPUT PARAMETERS

       service_name  A service name (string).

       info          Options to the name service functions (handle).

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

       port_name     a port name (string).

       IERROR        Fortran only: Error status (integer).

DESCRIPTION

       This  function retrieves a port_name published under service_name by a previous invocation
       of MPI_Publish_name. The application must supply a port_name buffer large enough  to  hold
       the largest possible port name (i.e., MPI_MAX_PORT_NAME bytes).

INFO ARGUMENTS

       The following keys for info are recognized:

       Key                   Type      Description
       ---                   ----      -----------

       ompi_lookup_order     char *    Resolution order for name lookup.

       The  ompi_lookup_order  info key can specify one of four valid string values (see the NAME
       SCOPE section below for more information on name scopes):

       local: Only search the local scope for name resolution.

       global: Only search the global scope for name resolution.

       local,global: Search the local scope for name resolution.  If
           not found, try searching the global scope for name resolution.  This behavior  is  the
           default if the ompi_lookup_order info key is not specified.

       global,local: Search the global scope for name resolution.  If
           not found, try searching the local scope for name resolution.

       If no info key is provided, the search will first check to see if a global server has been
       specified and is available. If so, then the search will default  to  global  scope  first,
       followed by local. Otherwise, the search will default to local.

NAME SCOPE

       Open  MPI  supports  two name scopes: global and local. Local scope values are placed in a
       data store located on the mpirun of the calling process' job, while  global  scope  values
       reside  on  a central server. Calls to MPI_Unpublish_name must correctly specify the scope
       to be used in finding the value to be removed. The function will return an  error  if  the
       specified service name is not found on the indicated location.

       For  a  more  detailed  description  of scoping rules, please see the MPI_Publish_name man
       page.

ERRORS

       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.

       See the MPI man page for a full list of MPI error codes.
