DESCRIPTION

The routine pvm_mstat returns the status mstat of the computer named host with respect to running PVM processes. This routine can be used to determine if a particular host has failed and if the virtual machine needs to be reconfigured. The function pvm_notify() can also be used to notify the caller that a host has failed.

C:
     mstat = pvm_mstat( "msr.ornl.gov" );

Fortran:
     CALL PVMFMSTAT( 'msr.ornl.gov', MSTAT )

 

ERRORS

These error conditions can be returned by pvm_mstat
PvmSysErr
pvmd not responding.
PvmNoHost
giving a host name not in the virtual machine.
PvmHostFail
