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: AMD64 operating system: 64-bit Linux Fortran compiler: NAGWare f95 Release 5.0 and compatible C compiler: gcc 3.3 and compatible MPI: MPICH 1.2.6 and 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: AMD64 Opteron 844 (4-way) operating system: SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 8 (Kernel 2.4.19-SMP, glibc-2.2.5-173) Fortran compiler: NAGWare f95 compiler Release 5.0(363) (with glibc-2.2) compiler options: -O4 -dcfuns -mismatch -W0,-cope_with_scalapack_bug C compiler: gcc 3.3 compiler options: -O4 MPI: MPICH version 1.2.6 MPI configuration options: --with-f95nag and was also tested on hardware: AMD64 Opteron operating system: SuSE Linux 9.1 (x86-64) - Kernel 2.6.4-52-default (227) glibc-2.3.3-63 Fortran compiler: NAGWare f95 compiler Release 5.0(363) (with glibc-2.3) compiler options: -O4 -dcfuns -mismatch -W0,-cope_with_scalapack_bug C compiler: gcc 3.3 compiler options: -O4 MPI: MPICH version 1.2.6 MPI configuration options: --with-f95nag
The entire NAG Parallel Library, Release 3, was compiled with full optimization (-O4), except for the following routines, which had to be compiled at lesser optimization levels:
This implementation has been tested using the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) and the Basic Linear Algebra Communication Subprograms (BLACS) provided by NAG.

compiled libraries, libnagmpi.a: 6.4 Mb libacml.a: 19.0 Mb libnagfls.a: 0.4 Mb example program material: 1.4 Mb documentation files: 24.0 kb
To install all the 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, libacml.a and
libnagfls.a should be placed in a directory, such as /usr/lib, in the
default search path of the linker so that linkage is convenient.
The object library libacml.a is a full implementation of ACML (AMD Core Math Library), Version 2.5.1, using the NAGWare f95 compiler. It includes all those BLAS required by the NAG Parallel Library.
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 example, give the command
nagmpiexample f04ebfpto run the F04EBFP example program.
The following material should also be made accessible to users:
other library documentation (see Section 5) compiled libraries:
libnagmpi.a libacml.a libnagfls.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 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.
