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: IBM RS/6000 Power3 systems operating system: AIX v4.3 or compatible Fortran compiler: XL Fortran v7.1 or compatible MPI: IBM Parallel Operating Environment
If a different implementation of MPI is installed, the supplied BLACS libraries may have to be rebuilt with different options set in the file Bmake.inc. The objects in these libraries should be placed in the main NAG Parallel Library archive (libnagmpi.a).
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: IBM RS/6000 Power3 44P Model 270 operating system: AIX v4.3 Fortran compiler: XL Fortran v188.8.131.52 compiler options: -qarch=pwr3 C compiler: VisualAge C++ v184.108.40.206 compiler options: -qarch=pwr3 MPI: IBM Parallel Operating Environment v220.127.116.11
The supplied archive library (libnagmpi.a) includes the Fortran MPI version of the Basic Linear Algebra Communication Subprograms (BLACS v1.1, with patch02 dated 18.8.98). The entire NAG NAG Parallel Library, Release 3, was compiled with full optimization (-O3), except for the following routine which had to be compiled at a lesser optimization level:
This implementation has been tested using the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) provided by NAG in the archive libnagmpi.a and also with the BLAS provided in ESSL v18.104.22.168.
For further details, refer to other documentation supplied or contact NAG (see Section 6).

compiled libraries, libnagmpi.a: 6.5 Mb libnagmpi_pessl.a 5.0 Mb example program material: 0.9 Mb documentation files: 0.1 Mb licensing materials 16.1 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 (if PESSL is available) libnagmpi_pessl.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.
For the NAG Parallel Library you will be provided with an uncounted license key for use on a specific machine.
An uncounted license key consists of one FEATURE or INCREMENT line for each product licensed, for example:
FEATURE NAG_FD NAG 3.000 31-dec-2000 0 CBDA2041DC1BC45D2B68 \ "IB3M," 80896b27
This enables an unlimited number of instances of version 3 of the application NAG_FD until the date specified on the system with hostid 80896b27 only. Note that the line is continued by escaping the newline character with '\'.
You will have to inform NAG of the hostid of the system. To obtain the hostid, locate the FLEXlm utility program 'lmutil' in fdib303dm/license/bin/rs6000_u3, and run it with argument 'lmhostid'.
Once you have obtained the license key, store the text of it in a file, say /usr/local/lib/nag/license.dat
The location of this file must be made known to the NAG application by setting the environment variable LM_LICENSE_FILE to the full pathname of the file before the application is invoked.
For example, in the C-shell, type:
setenv LM_LICENSE_FILE /usr/local/lib/nag/license.dator in the Bourne shell, type:
LM_LICENSE_FILE=/usr/local/lib/nag/license.dat export LM_LICENSE_FILE
No other actions are required to install an uncounted license.
For example, give the command
nagmpiexample f04ebfpto run the F04EBFP example program. Almost all the example programs have 4 processes. nagmpiexample uses poe to run all these processes on the hosts specified in the file ./host.list
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
other library documentation (see Section 5)
libnagmpi.a libnagmpi_pessl.aexample program material:
examples/source/*e.f examples/data/*e.d examples/results/*e.r scripts/nagmpiexample
Making the supplied example material directly available to users provides them with easily adaptable templates for their own problems.
On-line documentation is also provided, in PDF form, with this implementation. Please see the Readme file on the distribution medium for further information.
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 please quote your NAG site reference and NAG product code (in this case FDIB303DM).
The NAG websites are an information service providing items of interest to users and prospective users of NAG products and services.
