CS621: Spring 2014

Project 1: (Due on March 12, 2013, 3:50PM) Experiencing MPI


This project helps you gain some experience by setting up an MPI environment and running some sample MPI programs on your own computer.

MPI resources

You can learn about MPI programming from the class notes, "Programming Using Message-Passing" and Tutorial on MPI: The Message Passing Interface.

A sample MPI program

You may begin by compiling and running a sample program. In order to run this sample program you must:
  1. Visit http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/mpi/mpich2/ to download a copy of the MPI software to install on your own computer.
  2. Download the following files.
  3. You can compile the files explicitly.
  4. To run these programs.

Once you got your program running, you should do the following exercises to get a feeling of parallel computing. (20 points)
