Boost.MPI is layered on top of plain MPI; it basically provides a
mapping from complex and user-defined C++ data types to MPI datatypes.
The added overhead depends on how complex the C++ data structures are;
there are some tweaks and hints that can reduce the overhead, it's all
explained in the manual.
There are also some performance comparison available in the Boost.MPI
P.S. I think discussion of Boost.MPI is off-topic on the OMPI mailing
list; feel free to email me privately or move discussion to the
