MESSAGE-ROUTING SYSTEMS FOR TRANSPUTER-BASED MULTICOMPUTERS

Abstract

An efficient message-routing system, an essential component of a multicomputer, allows communication between any two processes of a concurrent program wherever they are located on a parallel computer network. It simplifies the concurrent software development on multicomputers by separating the hardware architecture from the software configuration of processes. This article surveys some implemented routers for transputer networks and compares them for adaptivity, deadlock freedom, network latency, generality, and livelock freedom.
