Aide Scilab >> Calculs Parallèles avec PVM > pvm_delhosts


deletes hosts from the virtual machine.

Calling Sequence

infos = pvm_delhosts(hosts)



row of strings, containing the names of the machines to be deleted.


row of integers, contains the status code returned by the routine for the individual hosts.


pvm_delhosts deletes the computers named in hosts from the existing configuration of computers making up the virtual machine. All PVM processes and the pvmd running on these computers are killed as the computer is deleted. The array info can be checked to determine the status of each host. Values less than zero indicate an error, while zero values indicate a success.

If a host fails, the PVM system will continue to work and will automatically delete the failing host from the virtual machine. It is the responsibility of the application developer to make his application tolerant of host failure.
