MPI-3 support on AIX 6.1

web interface hasn't allowed me to select the correct product.It should be :
Product: Parallel Environment for AIX

Currently AIX 6.1 doesn't support the message passing layer MPI-3 functionality

We would like with this RFE to get a porting of MPI-3 on AIX 6.1

    PE is deprecated and we will not be able to provide AIX support or MPI-3 support for PE 6.1

    PE for AIX 6.1 is very old product. PE has been deprecated some time ago, and IBM will not be able to offer MPI-3 support on PE 6.1 for AIX.
