Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Memory mapped memory
From: James Dinan (dinan_at_[hidden])

Sure, this is possible and generally works, although it is not defined
by the MPI standard. Regular shared memory rules apply: you may have to
add additional memory consistency and/or synchronization calls depending
on your platform to ensure that MPI sees intended data updates.

Best,
