flux-shell: populate PMI_process_mapping key #2278

merged 6 commits into from Jul 31, 2019

commented Jul 30, 2019

I forgot to populate this key, which, if present, is used by MPI to determine which procs can used shared memory to communicate because they are on the same node.

Add a helper function to libpmi, then use it in the shell's pmi implementation.

Add some tests that verify cliques work as intended for simple cases.

Add a helper for encoding the PMI_process_mapping value
from an array of 'struct pmi_map_block's.

Link clique.c in with both and
instead of just the client, so this server-side helper
can be used by server implementations.
Problem: PMI_process_mapping is unavailable for clique
computation by MPI tasks.

Add logic to generate this key, and add it to the PMI
KVS hash on each shell.

If the key cannot be set because the value exceeds the
static value length, emit a log message on stderr but
don't treat it as an error since the client can run
without clique information.

Fixes #2277
Problem: this description of callbacks from the PMI protocol
engine was unclear.  It sounds like the whole thing is blocked
while one callback is handled.

Reword to emphasize that only the task that caused the
callback is effectively blocked while awaiting a response.
Other tasks may continue to work in the protocol engine,
and the shell's reactor is never stalled.

PMI_process_mapping is added to the local PMI hash
at initialization, and should have the same value
on every shell.  But because it's in the hash, it's
considered "dirty data" to be committed to the shared
KVS during a PMI_Barrier.

Explicitly exclude this key from the KVS transaction
committed during the PMI_Barrier, and thus avoid overhead
that has no effect.
