Interoperability of Parallel Systems: Running PVM Applications in the Legion Environment

Author:Harper, Roger, Department of Computer ScienceUniversity of Virginia

Parallel Programming systems based on loosely coupled networks of computers are becoming more and more popular. One of the more popular systems is Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) which allows a user to think of a set of computers as a single parallel machine. The Legion project at the University of Virginia is another attempt to provide users with the illusion that a collection of computers is a single virtual machine. This report describes a software library that allows applications written for the PVM system to run in the Legion Environment. The report describes the design and development of the library, and compares the performance of the library, and PVM, on established benchmark applications.
