shmem_fence - Provides a separate ordering on the sequence of puts issued by this PE to each destination PE.
C or C++: #include <mpp/shmem.h> void shmem_fence(void); Fortran: INCLUDE "mpp/shmem.fh" CALL SHMEM_FENCE
The shmem_fence() routine provides an ordering on the put operations issued by the calling PE prior to the call to shmem_fence() relative to the put operations issued by the calling PE following the call to shmem_fence(). It guarantees that all such prior put operations issued to a particular destination PE are fully written to the symmetric memory of that destination PE, before any such following put operations to that same destination PE are written to the symmetric memory of that destination PE. Note that the ordering is provided separately on the sequences of puts from the calling PE to each distinct destination PE. The shmem_quiet() routine should be used instead if ordering of puts is required when multiple destination PEs are involved.
The shmem_quiet function should be called if ordering of puts is desired when multiple remote PEs are involved.
