Abstract:

This study established a distributed-parallel computing testbed, comprised of two shared-memory multiprocessors linked by a wide-area network. A missile-tracking simulator application was implemented on this testbed for the purposes of evaluating the feasibility of distributed-parallel computing. Several scenarios were run and performance data collected for each of four computing modes. Preliminary evaluation of the software model and analysis of the scenario performance data are presented.
