Gets the name of the processor


#include "mpi.h"
int MPI_Get_processor_name( name, resultlen )
char *name;
int *resultlen;

Output Parameters

name A unique specifier for the actual (as opposed to virtual) node.
resultlen Length (in characters) of the name


The name returned should identify a particular piece of hardware; the exact format is implementation defined. This name may or may notbe the same as might be returned by gethostname, uname, or sysinfo.

Notes for Fortran

All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME and MPI_WTICK) havean additional argument ierr at the end of the argument list. ierris an integer and has the same meaning as the return value of the routinein C. In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines, and are invoked with thecall statement.

All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype, MPI_Comm) are of type INTEGERin Fortran.
