MARGO_SERVER_MODE

Server mode for margo_init.

MARGO_DEFAULT_PROVIDER_ID

Default provider id. This is the provider id used by default in MARGO_REGISTER, margo_forward, and its variants that do not ask for a provider id.

Important: it is not recommended for users to use this provider id for actual providers. If you work with actual providers, use provider ids starting from 0. This default provider id is meant for clients and for RPC not associated with providers.

MARGO_MAX_PROVIDER_ID

Maximum allowed value for a provider id.

MARGO_INIT_INFO_INITIALIZER

Initializer for margo_init_info.

MARGO_REGISTER(__mid, __func_name, __in_t, __out_t, __handler)

Parameters
  • __mid – Margo instance id.

  • __func_name – String name of the RPC.

  • __in_t – type of input.

  • __out_t – type of the output.

  • __handler – Name of the function to register.

Returns

The RPC id (hg_id_t).

MARGO_REGISTER_PROVIDER(__mid, __func_name, __in_t, __out_t, __handler, __provider_id, __pool)

Macro that registers a function as an RPC with a specific provider ID and Argobots pool.

Parameters
  • __mid – Margo instance id.

  • __func_name – String name of the RPC.

  • __in_t – type of input.

  • __out_t – type of the output.

  • __handler – Name of the function to register.

  • __provider_id – Provider id.

Parameters
  • __name[in] name of handler function.

DECLARE_MARGO_RPC_HANDLER(__name)

Macro that declares the prototype for a function to glue an RPC handler to a ULT.

Parameters
  • __name[in] name of handler function.

Typedefs

typedef struct margo_instance *margo_instance_id

Margo instance id. Entry point to the margo runtime.

typedef struct margo_data *margo_data_ptr
typedef struct margo_request_struct *margo_request

Request for non-blocking operations.

typedef void (*margo_finalize_callback_t)(void*)

Type of callback called during finalization or pre-finalization of Margo.

Enums

enum margo_request_type

Type of margo_request.

Values:

enumerator MARGO_RESPONSE_REQUEST
enumerator MARGO_FORWARD_REQUEST
enumerator MARGO_BULK_REQUEST
enumerator MARGO_INVALID_REQUEST

Functions

margo_instance_id margo_init(const char *addr_str, int mode, int use_progress_thread, int rpc_thread_count)

Initializes margo library.

Note

Servers (processes expecting to service incoming RPC requests) must specify non-zero values for use_progress_thread and rpc_thread_count or call margo_wait_for_finalize() after margo_init() to relinguish control to Margo.

Parameters
  • addr_str[in] Mercury host address with port number

  • mode[in] Mode to run Margo in (MARGO_CLIENT_MODE or MARGO_SERVER_MODE).

  • use_progress_thread[in] Boolean flag to use a dedicated thread for running Mercury’s progress loop. If false, it will run in the caller’s thread context.

  • rpc_thread_count[in] Number of threads to use for running RPC calls. A value of 0 directs Margo to execute RPCs in the caller’s thread context. Clients (i.e processes that will not service incoming RPCs) should use a value of 0. A value of -1 directs Margo to use the same execution context as that used for Mercury progress.

Returns

margo instance id on success, MARGO_INSTANCE_NULL upon error.

margo_instance_id margo_init_ext(const char *address, int mode, const struct margo_init_info *args)

Initializes a margo instance using a margo_init_info struct to provide extra arguments.

The margo json configuration also supports the following convenience parameters at input time (the resulting runtime json will contain a fully resolved pool configuration):

  • use_progress_thread: bool (default false)

  • rpc_thread_count: integer (default 0)

Note

If you are configuring Argobots pools yourself before passing them into this function, please consider setting ABT_MEM_MAX_NUM_STACKS to a low value (like 8) either in your environment or programmatically with putenv() in your code before creating the pools to prevent excess memory consumption under load from producer/consumer patterns across execution streams that fail to utilize per-execution stream stack caches. See https://xgitlab.cels.anl.gov/sds/margo/issues/40 for details. The margo_init() function does this automatically.

Note

Note that supported kinds of pools are fifo_wait (default) fifo (for use with basic scheduler; will busy spin when idle) and prio_wait (custom pool implementation for Margo that favors existing ULTs over newly created ULTs when possible)

Parameters
  • address – Address or protocol.

  • mode – MARGO_CLIENT_MODE or MARGO_SERVER_MODE.

  • args – Extra arguments.

Returns

a margo_instance_id or MARGO_INSTANCE_NULL in case of failure.

int margo_set_environment(const char *optional_json_config)

Configures the runtime environment dependencies for use by Margo without initializing Margo.

The primary purpose of this function is to set preferred environment variables for Argobots (e.g., ULT stack size) if Argobots will be initialized before calling margo_init() or margo_init_ext().

Parameters

optional_json_config[in] The json-formatted configuration parameters to be used by Margo when it is initialized later (if known). If not specified, then margo_set_environment() will use default values.

Returns

returns 0 on success, negative value on failure

margo_instance_id margo_init_opt (const char *addr_str, int mode, const struct hg_init_info *hg_init_info, int use_progress_thread, int rpc_thread_count) DEPRECATED("use margo_init_ext instead")

Initializes margo library with custom Mercury options.

Deprecated:

Note

Servers (processes expecting to service incoming RPC requests) must specify non-zero values for use_progress_thread and rpc_thread_count or call margo_wait_for_finalize() after margo_init() to relinguish control to Margo.

Parameters
  • addr_str[in] Mercury host address with port number.

  • mode[in] Mode to run Margo in (MARGO_CLIENT_MODE or MARGO_SERVER_MODE).

  • hg_init_info[in] (Optional) Mercury init info, passed directly to Mercury.

  • use_progress_thread[in] Boolean flag to use a dedicated thread for running Mercury’s progress loop. If false, it will run in the caller’s thread context.

  • rpc_thread_count[in] Number of threads to use for running RPC calls. A value of 0 directs Margo to execute RPCs in the caller’s thread context. Clients (i.e processes that will not service incoming RPCs) should use a value of 0. A value of -1 directs Margo to use the same execution context as that used for Mercury progress.

Returns

margo instance id on success, MARGO_INSTANCE_NULL upon error

margo_instance_id margo_init_pool (ABT_pool progress_pool, ABT_pool handler_pool, hg_context_t *hg_context) DEPRECATED("use margo_init_ext instead")

Initializes the margo instance from the given argobots and Mercury instances.

Deprecated:

Note

If you are configuring Argobots pools yourself before passing them into this function, please consider setting ABT_MEM_MAX_NUM_STACKS to a low value (like 8) either in your environment or programmatically with putenv() in your code before creating the pools to prevent excess memory consumption under load from producer/consumer patterns across execution streams that fail to utilize per-execution stream stack caches. You may also look at margo_set_environment for this purpose. The margo_init() function does this automatically.

Parameters
  • progress_pool[in] Argobots pool to drive communication.

  • handler_pool[in] Argobots pool to service RPC handlers.

  • hg_context[in] Mercury context.

Returns

margo instance id on success, MARGO_INSTANCE_NULL upon error.

void margo_finalize(margo_instance_id mid)

Requests the margo instance to shut down and free its resources.

Note

This function does not guarantee that the margo instance will be finalized immediately. When called in a server, where RPCs may be executing, for example, this call will only margo the margo instance as finalizing, preventing further RPCs from being scheduled, however the margo instance will effectively be destroyed only when all the RPCs have completed.

Note

This function is safe to use within an RPC handler.

Parameters

mid[in] Margo instance.

void margo_wait_for_finalize(margo_instance_id mid)

Suspends the caller until some other entity (e.g. an RPC, thread, or signal handler) invokes margo_finalize() or margo_finalize_and_wait().

Note

This function informs Margo that the calling thread no longer needs to be scheduled for execution if it is sharing an Argobots pool with the progress engine.

Parameters

mid[in] Margo instance.

void margo_finalize_and_wait(margo_instance_id mid)

Requests the margo instance to shut down and free its resources, and wait until it actually does.

Contrary to margo_finalize(), this function guarantees that the margo instance has been freed upon returning.

Note

This function should not be called from within an RPC handler.

Parameters

mid[in] Margo instance.

hg_bool_t margo_is_listening(margo_instance_id mid)

Checks whether a Margo instance we initialized is a server (i.e., listening for incoming RPC requests).

Parameters

mid[in] Margo instance/

Returns

true if listening or false if not, or not a valid margo instance.

void margo_push_prefinalize_callback(margo_instance_id mid, margo_finalize_callback_t cb, void *uargs)

Installs a callback to be called before the margo instance is finalized, and before the Mercury progress loop is terminated.

Callbacks installed will be called in reverse ordered than they have been pushed, and with the user-provider pointer as argument.

Note

Callbacks may not be called within margo_finalize. They are called when the margo instance is cleaned up, which may happen in margo_wait_for_finalize.

Note

Callbacks installed using this function are allowed to call RPCs or margo_thread_sleep. The process may itself receive and respond to RPCs in the mean time.

Parameters
  • mid – The margo instance.

  • cb – Callback to install.

  • uargs – User-provider argument to pass to the callback when called.

int margo_pop_prefinalize_callback(margo_instance_id mid)

Removes the last pre-finalize callback that was pushed into the margo instance without calling it. If a callback was removed, this function returns 1, otherwise it returns 0.

Parameters

mid – Margo instance.

Returns

Whether a callback was removed.

int margo_top_prefinalize_callback(margo_instance_id mid, margo_finalize_callback_t *cb, void **uargs)

Get the last pre-finalize callback that was pushed into the margo instance as well as its argument. If a callback is found, this function returns 1, otherwise it returns 0.

Parameters
  • mid – Margo instance.

  • cb – Returned callback.

  • uargs – Uargs.

Returns

1 is a callback was found, 0 otherwise.

void margo_provider_push_prefinalize_callback(margo_instance_id mid, const void *owner, margo_finalize_callback_t cb, void *uargs)

Installs a callback to be called before the margo instance is finalized, and before the Mercury progress loop is terminated. The owner pointer allows to identify callbacks installed by particular providers.

Note

One can install multiple callbacks with the same owner. If popped, they will be popped in reverse order of installation. If they are not popped, they will be called in reverse order of installation by the margo cleanup procedure.

Note

Callbacks installed using this function may call RPCs or margo_thread_sleep, but do not guarantee that the process isn’t itself going to receive RPCs in the mean time.

Parameters
  • mid – The margo instance.

  • owner – Owner of the callback (to be used when popping callbacks).

  • cb – Callback to install.

  • uargs – User-provider argument to pass to the callback when called.

int margo_provider_pop_prefinalize_callback(margo_instance_id mid, const void *owner)

Removes the last prefinalize callback that was pushed into the margo instance by the specified owner. If a callback is removed, this function returns 1, otherwise it returns 0.

Parameters
  • mid – Margo instance.

  • owner – Owner of the callback.

Returns

1 if a callback was removed, 0 otherwise.

int margo_provider_top_prefinalize_callback(margo_instance_id mid, const void *owner, margo_finalize_callback_t *cb, void **uargs)

Get the last prefinalize callback that was pushed into the margo instance by the specified owner. If a callback is found, this function returns 1, otherwise it returns 0.

Parameters
  • mid – Margo instance.

  • owner – Owner of the callback.

  • uargs – Returned user arguments.

Returns

1 if a callback was found, 0 otherwise.

void margo_push_finalize_callback(margo_instance_id mid, margo_finalize_callback_t cb, void *uargs)

Installs a callback to be called before the margo instance is finalized. Callbacks installed will be called in reverse ordered than they have been pushed, and with the user-provider pointer as argument.

Attention

Callbacks cannot make RPC calls nor use margo_thread_sleep. If you need to be able to make RPC calls or use margo_thread_sleep, you should use margo_push_prefinalize_callback instead.

Note

Callbacks may not be called within margo_finalize. They are called when the margo instance is cleaned up, which may happen in margo_wait_for_finalize.

Parameters
  • mid – The margo instance.

  • cb – Callback to install.

  • uargs – User-provider argument to pass to the callback when called.

hg_return_t margo_set_current_rpc_id(margo_instance_id mid, hg_id_t id)

Inform Margo that the current ULT has been created as a consequence of the execution of a particular RPC (represented by its RPC id).

This information is used to track call paths in the monitoring subsystem. Calls to margo_forward or margo_bulk_transfer happening within an RPC handler will automatically detect that they are being called in the context of that RPC handler and set their callpath information accordingly. However, if an RPC handler spawns a ULT that calls margo_forward or margo_bulk_transfer, margo will not be able to detect the causality. Calling margo_set_current_rpc_id at the beginning of the ULT (or before margo_forward or margo_bulk_transfer are called) mitigates this problem.

Note that the user may use margo_get_info(handle)->id to get the RPC id of a handle within an RPC handler.

Parameters
  • mid[in] Margo instance.

  • id[in] Current RPC id.

Returns

HG_SUCCESS or other Mercury error code.

hg_return_t margo_get_current_rpc_id(margo_instance_id mid, hg_id_t *id)

Get the RPC id of the current RPC handler, if within a handler, or the RPC id set by margo_set_current_rpc_id if margo_set_current_rpc_id was previously called in the same ULT.

Note that outside of any handler and without having called margo_set_current_rpc_id, id will still be set to a valid value (equal to MARGO_DEFAULT_PROVIDER_ID, due to the way margo encodes its RPC ids and provider ids).

IMPORTANT: this function does not guarantee to return the real RPC id of the current RPC, it is a best-effort made by margo when access to the handle of the RPC is not possible. Users should use margo_get_info(handle)->id to make sure to get the id from the handle, when the handle is available.

Parameters
  • mid[in] Margo instance.

  • id[out] Current RPC id.

Returns

HG_SUCCESS or other Mercury error code.

int margo_start_abt_profiling(margo_instance_id mid, bool detailed)

Start Argobots profiling. Argobots must have been installed with the +tool variant.

Parameters
  • mid – Margo instance.

int margo_stop_abt_profiling(margo_instance_id mid)

Stops Argobots profiling.

Parameters

mid – Margo instance.

Returns

0 on success, -1 on failure (e.g. if ABT profiling was no started or if Argobots was not compiled with tools).

int margo_dump_abt_profiling(margo_instance_id mid, const char *file, int uniquify, char **resolved_file_name)

Dump ABT profiling data in a file.

Parameters
  • mid[in] Margo instance.

  • file[in] Output file (“-” for stdout). If string begins with ‘/’ character then it will be treated as an absolute path. Otherwise the file will be placed in the directory specified output_dir or MARGO_OUTPUT_DIR.

  • uniquify[in] Flag indicating if file name should have additional information added to it to make output from different processes unique.

  • resolved_file_name[out] (ignored if NULL) Pointer to char* that will be set to point to a string with the fully resolved path to the state file that was generated. Must be freed by caller.

Returns

0 on success, -1 on failure.

int margo_state_dump(margo_instance_id mid, const char *file, int uniquify, char **resolved_file_name)

Appends Margo state information (including Argobots stack information) to the specified file in text format.

Parameters
  • mid[in] Margo instance.

  • file[in] Output file (“-” for stdout).

  • uniquify[in] flag indicating if file name should have additional information added to it to make output from different processes unique.

  • resolved_file_name[out] (ignored if NULL) Pointer to char* that will be set to point to a string with the fully resolved path to the state file that was generated. Must be freed by caller.

int margo_set_progress_timeout_ub_msec(margo_instance_id mid, unsigned timeout)

Set the upper-bound of the timeout value used when calling HG_Progress internally.

Note that this value is an upper bound, margo may dynamically choose a smaller value if some other ULTs are sharing the same ES as the progress loop, or if some timers are installed (e.g. because the user called a margo_forward_timed) and would need to be triggered before the “normal” upper bound.

Parameters
  • mid[in] Margo instance.

  • timeout[in] Timeout value in milliseconds.

Returns

0 in case of success, -1 otherwise.

int margo_get_progress_timeout_ub_msec(margo_instance_id mid, unsigned *timeout)

Get the upper bound of the progress timeout value used when calling HG_Progress.

Parameters
  • mid[in] Margo instance.

Parameters
  • mid[in] Margo instance.

  • key[in] Parameter name.

  • value[in] Parameter value.

Returns

0 on success, -1 on failure.

struct margo_init_info
#include <margo.h>

The margo_init_info structure should be passed to margo_init_ext to finely configure Margo. The structure can be memset to 0 to have margo use default values (no progress thread, no rpc thread, default initialization of mercury, etc.). For any field that is not NULL, margo_init_ext will first look for a configuration in the json_config string. If no configuration is found or of json_config is NULL, margo will fall back to default.

int margo_set_global_logger(const struct margo_logger *logger)

Set a logger structure for Margo to use in functions that don’t take a margo_instance_id (such as margo_init and its variants).

The structure will be internally copied and the user may free the input argument after the call. Passing NULL as logger will reset the global logger to a logger that only prints errors and critical messages on stderr.

Parameters

logger – Logger structure

Returns

0 in case of success, -1 otherwise

int margo_set_global_log_level(margo_log_level level)

Set the log level of the logger used for global operations.

Parameters

level – Log level

Returns

0 in case of success, -1 otherwise

void margo_trace(margo_instance_id mid, const char *fmt, ...)

Logging functions. These functions will use the logger registered with the margo instance, or the global logger if the margo instance is MARGO_INSTANCE_NULL.

Parameters
  • mid – Margo instance

  • fmt – Format string

  • ... – Extra arguments

Returns

0 in case of success, -1 in case of failure.

int margo_bulk_pool_get(margo_bulk_pool_t pool, hg_bulk_t *bulk)

Gets a free hg_bulk_t object from the pool. This function will block until a bulk object is available.

Parameters
  • pool[in] margo_bulk_pool_t object from which to take the hg_bulk_t.

  • bulk[out] hg_bulk_t object (guaranteed not to be HG_BULK_NULL if the returned value is 0).

Returns

0 in case of success, -1 in case of failure.

int margo_bulk_pool_tryget(margo_bulk_pool_t pool, hg_bulk_t *bulk)

Gets a free hg_bulk_t object from the pool. This function will return HG_BULK_NULL if no hg_bulk_t object is free at the moment of the call.

Parameters
  • pool – margo_bulk_pool_t object from which to take the hg_bulk_t.

Returns

0 in case of success, -1 in case of failure..

int margo_bulk_pool_release(margo_bulk_pool_t pool, hg_bulk_t bulk)

Puts a bulk handle back in the pool. Note that the function is expecting the bulk handle to have been taken from the pool in the first place. The function will return -1 if the bulk was not associated with this pool to begin with.

Parameters
  • pool – margo_bulk_pool_t object to which to return the bulk handle.

  • bulk – Bulk handle to release.

Returns

0 in case of success, -1 in case of failure.

hg_return_t margo_bulk_poolset_create(margo_instance_id mid, hg_size_t npools, hg_size_t nbufs, hg_size_t first_size, hg_size_t size_multiple, hg_uint8_t flag, margo_bulk_poolset_t *poolset)
