In asynchronous iterative methods on distributed-memory computers, processes update their local solutions using data from other processes without an implicit or explicit global synchronization that corresponds to advancing the global iteration counter. In this work, we test the asynchronous optimized Schwarz domain-decomposition iterative method using various one-sided (remote direct memory access) communication schemes with passive target completion. The results show that when one-sided communication is well-supported, the asynchronous version of optimized Schwarz can outperform the synchronous version even for perfectly balanced partitionings of the problem on a supercomputer with uniform nodes.
