MPI (Message-Passing Interface) is a standard specification for message-passing libraries. mpich is a portable implementation of the full MPI specification for a wide variety of parallel computing environments, including workstation clusters and massively parallel processors (MPPs). mpich contains, along with the MPI library itself, a programming environment for working with MPI programs. The programming environment includes a portable startup mechanism, several profiling libraries for studying the performance of MPI programs, and an X interface to all of the tools. This guide explains how to compile, test, and install mpich and its related tools. This document describes how to obtain and install mpich , the portable implementation of the MPI Message-Passing Standard Details on using the MPICH implementation are presented in a separate User's Guide for mpich .
