Algorithms to generate exchange maps


The exchange map matches the source and target decompositions of all processes and generates a mapping between source and target points with identical global indices.

The yaxt library provides multiple algorithms to generate an example.



This algorithm uses collective MPI routines to distribute the source and target decomposition among all processes. Afterwards all processes are able to compute the mapping of their local data with remote data by themselves.

This algorithm is quite simple, but has some drawbacks. Since it uses collective communication its scaling to high process counts is limited. In addtion, the distribution of the complete source and target decomposition to all processes can lead to memory problems, if no compact index list types are being used. For small process counts it might give good results.
