Description

The manual's entry on [immediate] entry methods doesn't say anything about why you'd use them or not use them and where they are allowed to run (the comm thread).

I think the manual should say that [immediate] entry methods can run on the comm thread in SMP mode, and because of that you generally don't want long running entry methods to be immediate since it could delay communication.

#3 Updated by Nitin Bhat 7 months ago

  • Target version set to 6.9.0
  • Status changed from New to In Progress

In addition to this change, I also see another related section that seems incomplete as well:

10 . 1 . 3 . 2 Immediate Messages
Immediate messages are special messages that skip the Charm scheduler, they can be executed in an ``immediate'' fashion even in the middle of a normal running entry method. They are supported only in nodegroup.

What are the user controls for Immediate Messages? (How to make a message immediate etc). I think those should be mentioned here.
