Allreduce

event CCL_API allreduce (const void *send_buf, void *recv_buf, size_t count, datatype dtype, reduction rtype, const communicator &comm, const stream &stream, const allreduce_attr &attr=default_allreduce_attr, const vector_class< event > &deps={})

Allreduce is a collective communication operation that performs the global reduction operation on values from all ranks of communicator and distributes the result back to all ranks.

Parameters
  • send_buf – the buffer with count elements of dtype that stores local data to be reduced

  • recv_buf – [out] the buffer to store reduced result, must have the same dimension as send_buf

  • count – the number of elements of type dtype in send_buf and recv_buf

  • dtype – the datatype of elements in send_buf and recv_buf

  • rtype – the type of the reduction operation to be applied

  • comm – the communicator for which the operation will be performed

  • stream – a stream associated with the operation

  • attr – optional attributes to customize operation

  • deps – an optional vector of the events that the operation should depend on

Returns

ccl::event an object to track the progress of the operation
