stk::parallel::DistributedIndex Class Reference

#include <DistributedIndex.hpp>

List of all members.

Detailed Description

Parallel cross-reference index for a collection of keys.


All methods use parallel collective communication operations.

Each processor constructs a DistributedIndex with its local collection of keys. The resulting DistributedIndex may be queried for

key space

When construction the key space is partitioned into N spans defined by a minimum and maximum key value for each span.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

stk::parallel::DistributedIndex::DistributedIndex ( ParallelMachine  comm,
const std::vector< KeySpan > &  partition_spans 

Construct a parallel index with a parititioning of the key space.

To guarantee parallel consistency process zero broadcasts the partition bounds and all other processes accept those bounds.

The vector of spans must be well-ordered and not overlap; e.g., partition_spans[i].first <= partition_spans[i].second partition_spans[i].second < partition_spans[i+1].first

Member Function Documentation

void stk::parallel::DistributedIndex::query ( const std::vector< KeyType > &  keys,
std::vector< KeyProc > &  sharing_of_keys 
) const

Query which processors added the given keys.

The local processor is in the output if it submitted a queried key.

void stk::parallel::DistributedIndex::update_keys ( const std::vector< KeyType > &  add_new_keys,
const std::vector< KeyType > &  remove_existing_keys 

Update a parallel index with new and changed keys.

FIRST: Remove this process' participation in the existing keys. SECOND: Add this process' participation in the new keys.

void stk::parallel::DistributedIndex::generate_new_keys ( const std::vector< size_t > &  requests,
std::vector< std::vector< KeyType > > &  requested_keys 

Request a collection of unused keys.

Each process inputs its independent request for keys which do not currenly appear in the distributed index. The output keys are grouped by partition_spans. The output keys are guaranteed to be unique among all processes. The output keys are added into the distributed index.

Multiple request should be bundled to reduce parallel communication costs. The output 'requested_keys' are sorted according to the policy.

The the 'first' member of the requests are the lower bound value for the keys.

Throw an exception on all process if any request cannot be satisfied.
