Title: Analysis of Implementation Options for MPI-2 One-Sided


Brian W. Barrett, Galen M. Shipman, Andrew Lumsdaine


The Message Passing Interface provides an interface for one- sided communication as part of the MPI-2 standard. The semantics spec- ified by MPI-2 allow for a number of different implementation avenues, each with different performance characteristics. Within the context of Open MPI, a freely available high performance MPI implementation, we analyze a number of implementation possibilities, including layering over MPI-1 send/receive and true remote memory access.
