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 not be 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) have an additional argument ierr at the end of the argument list. ierr is an integer and has the same meaning as the return value of the routine in C. In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines, and are invoked with the call statement.

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