Heterogenous Active Messages Abstract
Currently, implementations are being done on Unix and Win/NT. The initial testbed platform is two Pentium-II 266 processors connected by dedicated fast Ethernet. We have also made application for an ATM switch through a Canadian granting agency and expect to have that switch for comparative testing by early summer. Once the cross-platform version works, we will extend the software to run on a different machine architecture. The final stage will be comparing the performance on various platforms and machine and network architectures to attempt to draw useful insights for subsequent work.
