Whenever the NAG Parallel Library has been supplied in compiled form, that form is considered to be the standard library file. The use of all supplied software must be in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Software Licence signed by NAG and each site. Any request to use NAG software on a computer other than the one licensed must be referred to NAG (see Section 6).
This implementation is a compiled, tested, ready-to-use version of the NAG Parallel Library that is considered suitable for operation on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware: Intel Itanium 2 (IA64) systems and compatible operating system: 64-bit Linux Fortran compiler: Intel Fortran Itanium Compiler Version 9.1 or compatible MPI: MPICH 1.2.7p1 or compatible
For information about implementations of the NAG Parallel Library for use on other computer systems please contact NAG.
This implementation was produced at NAG Ltd., Oxford on the computing system detailed below:
hardware: SGI Altix operating system: Red Hat Linux Advanced Server release 2.1AS (Derry) with SGI ProPack 2.3 Fortran compiler: Intel(R) Fortran Itanium(R) Compiler for Itanium(R)-based applications Version 9.1 Package ID: l_fc_p_9.1.032 compiler options: -fPIC -auto -O4 C compiler: Intel(R) C Itanium(R) Compiler for Itanium(R)-based applications Version 9.1 Package ID: l_cc_p_9.1.038 compiler options: -DAdd_ -O MPI: MPICH Version 1.2.7p1 BLAS: Intel(R) Math Kernel Library 8.1 for Linux Package ID: l_mkl_p_8.1.014
Two archive libraries are supplied, libnagmpi.a and libnagmpi_sup.a.
The supplied archive library libnagmpi.a includes the Fortran MPI version of the Basic Linear Algebra Communication Subprograms (BLACS v1.1, with patch03 dated February 24, 2000). Both libraries were compiled with full optimization (-O4).
This implementation has been tested using the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) provided in Intel(R) Math Kernel Library 8.1 for Linux. The MKL version 8.1 libraries are supplied as a part of this product (see contents).
For further details, refer to other documentation supplied or contact NAG (see Section 6).

compiled libraries, libnagmpi.a: 10.9 Mb libnagmpi_sup.a 0.7 Mb example program material: 0.9 Mb documentation files: 0.1 Mb MKL (8.1) for IA64 libraries 84.8 Mb
To install all material use the Unix tar utility, e.g.
tar xvf /cdrom/fd03.tar(assuming the CD-ROM has been mounted as /cdrom).
Links to the object libraries libnagmpi.a and libnagmpi_sup.a may be placed in a directory, such as /usr/lib, in the default search path of the linker so that linkage is convenient.
The script nagmpiexample is intended to provide users with a simple means of access to the example material. It will require some minor edits to reflect the local installation and should be placed in a directory, such as /usr/local/bin, which is on users' execution search paths.
The installer should ensure that the users' environment is set up so that they can compile, link and execute (with the mpif77 and mpirun commands provided by MPICH) an MPI Fortran program that calls the Intel(R) Math Kernel Library. This is usually accomplished by setting the relevant environmentvariables (PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH) to the correct values in a script that gets executed at shell startup time. Alternatively, the installer may use the ldconfig(8) program to configure the run-time dynamic linker so that compiler run-time libraries and MKL libraries are accessible but this may be too inflexible for users who might want to use different versions of these libraries. If one relies on the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, it is imperative that it is set at shell startup time otherwise mpirun will fail, with a typical message "error while loading shared libraries".
For example, give the command
nagmpiexample f04ebfpto run the F04EBFP example program. Almost all the example programs have 4 processes. nagmpiexample uses mpirun (provided by your MPICH installation) to run the processes.
The following material should also be made accessible to users:

Making the supplied example material directly available to users provides them with easily adaptable templates for their own problems.
On-line documentation is bundled with this implementation. Please see Section 4.
The NAG Response Centres are available for general enquiries from all users and also for technical queries from sites with an annually licensed product or support service.
The Response Centres are open during office hours, but contact is possible by fax, email and phone (answering machine) at all times.
When contacting a Response Centre, it helps us deal with your enquiry quickly if you can quote your NAG site reference and NAG product code (in this case FDL6403DC).
