one-sided communication in Intel MPI

Does Intel MPI Library support passive target one-sided communication? How about the perforamnce?
It seems the performance of passive target one-sided operations implemented through MPI-2 windows is very poor. The implementation of RMA in Intel MPI is not truly one-sided. When a process call MPI_Get/Put, the target process won't response if it is busy on its own work.

Hi M Wang,

Yes it does. Intel MPI Library does supported passive one-sided communication. Performance... I don't know.
When you call MPI_Get/Put real communication will not be started until MPI_Win_Fence is called.
