DMDAGetProcessorSubsets#

Returns communicators consisting only of the processors in a DMDA adjacent in a particular dimension, corresponding to a logical plane in a 3D grid or a line in a 2D grid.

Synopsis#

#include "petscdmda.h"   
PetscErrorCode DMDAGetProcessorSubsets(DM da, DMDirection dir, MPI_Comm *subcomm)

Collective on da

Input Parameters#

  • da - the distributed array

  • dir - Cartesian direction, either DM_X, DM_Y, or DM_Z

Output Parameter#

  • subcomm - new communicator

Notes#

This routine is useful for distributing one-dimensional data in a tensor product grid.

After use, comm should be freed with MPI_Comm_free()

Fortran Note#

Not supported from Fortran
