X06ABF returns the number of OpenMP threads in the current team.
X06ABF, for multi-threaded implementations, returns the number of OpenMP threads in the current team. If the number of threads is deemed critical then you are advised to use X06ABF to retrieve this value as it may be less than that requested with either a call to X06AAF
, your OMP_NUM_THREADS environment variable value or by using a num_threads
clause on an OpenMP parallel
The number of threads actually in use in a parallel region is dependent on several factors. Please refer to Section 4
for a full description of how the number of threads is chosen for a particular parallel region.
If this routine is called from a sequential part of a multi-threaded program then it will return the value .
In serial implementations of the NAG Library this routine will always return
. See the X06 Chapter Introduction
for a discussion of the behaviour of these routines when called in serial.
X06ABF is not threaded in any implementation.
See Section 10
in X06AAF for a demonstration of how to use X06ABF.
