Is there any performance or space overheads for using 'tag' in MPI?

Hi, 

I wonder if  there can be any performance or space overheads for using 'tag' in MPI.

It would depend on how it is implemented, but I guess if it used a sort of hash map and keep (possible) multiple buffers for the buckets. The process memory size can blow up.

Can this happen?

What tag are you talking about?  Is this related to the MPI tag used in point-to-point communications?  This is part of the standard and is required.
