LAM Alaska Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM)

LAM Alaska Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM)

The above four packages are available in Synaptic or apt-get on the PCLinuxOS platform. All are at the 3.4.5-6 version in the pclos2009 distribution. According to the PVM home page, version 3.4.6 is the latest. I will almost always wait for upgrades to make it into the official repositories rather than doing a manual install. Synaptic and apt-get are just easy. My experience tells me that if an upgrade is addressing a critical fix the PCLinuxOS team won't take long to make it available. This is most true for the more polular packages. I am not sure how popular the pvm package is on the PCLinusOS platform. I was happy to find it in the repositories.

MPI is optimized by the vendors of Massively Parallel Processor environments. PVM is available for separate PCs of different architectures.

I installed pvm on all my machines and the additional pvm-examples, pvm-xpvm and libpvm-devel packages on q. I got pvm_intro   pvmd   pvmd3   pvm_shmd   PVM man pages along with the main pvm man page when the pvm package was installed. The tcsh package was a prerequisite to the pvm package. The tcl package was a prerequisite to the pvm-xpvm package. There were other prerequisites but they were already installed on my system.

The libpvm-devel package included the following man pages: aimk,   libfpvm,   libpvm,   pvm_addhosts,   pvm_addmhf,   pvm_advise,   pvm_archcode,   pvm_barrier,   pvm_bcast,   pvm_bufinfo,   pvm_catchout,   pvm_config,   pvm_delete,   pvm_delhosts,   pvm_delinfo,   pvm_delmhf,   pvm_exit,   pvm_export,   pvm_freebuf,   pvm_freecontext,   pvm_freezegroup,   pvm_gather,   pvm_getcontext,   pvm_getfds,   pvm_getinst,   pvm_getmboxinfo,   pvm_getmwid,   pvm_getopt,   pvm_getrbuf,   pvm_getsbuf,   pvm_gettid,   pvm_gettmask,   pvm_gsize,   pvm_halt,   pvm_hostsync,   pvm_initsend,   pvm_insert,   pvm_joingroup,   pvm_kill,   pvm_lookup,   pvm_lvgroup,   pvm_mcast,   pvm_mkbuf,   pvm_mstat,   pvm_mytid,   pvm_newcontext,   pvm_notify,   pvm_nrecv,   pvm_pack,   pvm_packf,   pvm_parent,   pvm_perror,   pvm_pkbyte,   pvm_pkcplx,   pvm_pkdcplx,   pvm_pkdouble,   pvm_pkfloat,   pvm_pkint,   pvm_pklong,   pvm_pkmesg,   pvm_pkmesgbody,   pvm_pkshort,   pvm_pkstr,   pvm_pkuint,   pvm_pkulong,   pvm_pkushort,   pvm_precv,   pvm_probe,   pvm_psend,   pvm_pstat,   pvm_putinfo,   pvm_recv,   pvm_recvf,   pvm_recvinfo,   pvm_reduce,   pvm_reg_hoster,   pvm_reg_rm,   pvm_reg_tasker,   pvm_scatter,   pvm_send,   pvm_sendsig,   pvm_serror,   pvm_setcontext,   pvm_setmwid,   pvm_setopt,   pvm_setrbuf,   pvm_setsbuf,   pvm_settmask,   pvm_siblings,   pvm_spawn,   pvm_start_pvmd,   pvm_tasks,   pvm_tidtohost,   pvm_trecv,   pvm_unexport,   pvm_unpack,   pvm_unpackf,   pvm_upkbyte,   pvm_upkcplx,   pvm_upkdcplx,   pvm_upkdouble,   pvm_upkfloat,   pvm_upkint,   pvm_upklong,   pvm_upkmesg,   pvm_upkshort,   pvm_upkstr,   pvm_upkuint,   pvm_upkulong,   pvm_upkushort,   pvmfaddhost,   pvmfaddmhf,   pvmfadvise,   pvmfarchcode,   pvmfbarrier,   pvmfbcast,   pvmfbufinfo,   pvmfcatchout,   pvmfconfig,   pvmfdelhost,   pvmfdelinfo,   pvmfdelmhf,   pvmfexit,   pvmffreebuf,   pvmffreecontext,   pvmffrzgrp,   pvmfgather,   pvmfgetcontext,   pvmfgetinst,   pvmfgetmboxinfo,   pvmfgetopt,   pvmfgetrbuf,   pvmfgetsbuf,   pvmfgettid,   pvmfgsize,   pvmfhalt,   pvmfhostsync,   pvmfinitsend,   pvmfjoingrp,   pvmfkill,   pvmflvgrp,   pvmfmcast,   pvmfmkbuf,   pvmfmstat,   pvmfmytid,   pvmfnewcontext,   pvmfnotify,   pvmfnrecv,   pvmfpack,   pvmfparent,   pvmfperror,   pvmfpkmesg,   pvmfpkmesgbody,   pvmfprecv,   pvmfprobe,   pvmfpsend,   pvmfpstat,   pvmfputinfo,   pvmfrecv,   pvmfrecvinfo,   pvmfreduce,   pvmfscatter,   pvmfsend,   pvmfsendsig,   pvmfserror,   pvmfsetcontext,   pvmfsetopt,   pvmfsetrbuf,   pvmfsetsbuf,   pvmfsiblings,   pvmfspawn,   pvmfstartpvmd,   pvmftasks,   pvmftidtoh,   pvmftrecv,   pvmfunpack,   pvmfupkmesg

The libpvm-devel package man pages document the function calls available from c and fortran to developers of programs that are to run in the Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) environment.
