pvm_mstat - Returns the status of a host in the virtual machine.
C int mstat = pvm_mstat( char *host )
Fortran call pvmfmstat( host, mstat )
Character string containing the host name.
Integer returning machine status:
PvmOk host is OK
PvmNoHost host is not in virtual machine
PvmHostFail host is unreachable (and thus possibly failed)
returns the status
of the computer named
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.
