Abstract-- In this paper, we propose a light-weight
asynchronous message progression mechanism for large
message transfers in Message Passing Interface (MPI)
Rendezvous protocol that is scenario-conscious and
consequently overhead-free in cases where independent
message progression naturally happens. Without requiring a
dedicated thread, we take advantage of small bursts of CPU to
poll for message transfer conditions. The existing application
thread is parasitized for the purpose of getting those small
bursts of CPU. Our proposed approach is only triggered when
the message transfer would otherwise be deferred to the MPI
wait call; and it allows for full message progression, achieving
100% overlap. It does not add to the memory footprint of the
applications, and is effective in improving the communication
