  • single partition (communicator) per process
  • the same number of parts per mesh instance

Known Bugs/Issues

See Issue Tickets.

Bug Fixes

  • [FMDB] (#323) Incorrect # owned mesh entities after multi-part distribution
  • [iMesh-FMDB] valgrind error with perfTest example run

New API/Features

  • [FMDB.h] given global part id, getting process rank of the part
        int FMDB_Part_GetRank (int partID, int* rank);
  • [FMDB.h] manual part boundary update
     // get entity's remote copies. If no remote copy exists on the part, returns error.
     int FMDB_Ent_GetAllRmt (pMeshEnt meshEnt, std::vector<std::pair<int, pMeshEnt>  >&  vecRmt);

     // get entity's remote copy on a specific part. If no remote copy exists on the part, 
     // returns error.
     int FMDB_Ent_GetRmt(pMeshEnt&  meshEnt, int global_partid, pMeshEnt&  rmtEnt);

     // set or overwrite entity's remote copy on a specific part. If NULL is given for "rmtEnt",
     // existing remote copy on the part is deleted.
     int FMDB_Ent_AddRmt(pMeshEnt meshEnt, int global_partid, pMeshEnt rmtEnt);

     // remove entity's remote copy on a specific part. If no remote copy exists on the part, 
     // returns error. 
     int FMDB_Ent_RmvRmt (pMeshEnt meshEnt, int global_partid);

     // remove entity's remote copy changing it to internal entity. 
     int FMDB_Ent_ClrRmt (pMeshEnt meshEnt);

     // synchronize the global part ids and part partition classification per mesh entity. 
     // This should be called after liberal part creation done through FMDB_Mesh_CreatePart 
     // or part boundary change by FMDB_Ent_(Add|Rmv|Clr)Rmt */
     int FMDB_Mesh_SyncPtn (pMeshMdl mesh);

        int FMDB_Mesh_SetMaxNumPart (pMeshMdl mesh, int maxNumPart);
        int FMDB_Mesh_GetMaxNumPart (pMeshMdl mesh, int* maxNumPart);
  • [FMDB.h] setting remote copy of mesh entity
        // OLD
