6.12.6 MPI Wisdom Communication

To facilitate synchronizing wisdom among the different MPI processes, we provide two functions:

void fftw_mpi_gather_wisdom(MPI_Comm comm);
void fftw_mpi_broadcast_wisdom(MPI_Comm comm);

The fftw_mpi_gather_wisdom function gathers all wisdom in the given communicator comm to the process of rank 0 in the communicator: that process obtains the union of all wisdom on all the processes. As a side effect, some other processes will gain additional wisdom from other processes, but only process 0 will gain the complete union.

The fftw_mpi_broadcast_wisdom does the reverse: it exports wisdom from process 0 in comm to all other processes in the communicator, replacing any wisdom they currently have.
