Abstract:

The objective of the work presented in this report was to determine the feasibility of integrating the architectural database of the Parallel Assessment Window System PAWS into the database of the Parallel Proto PPROTO tool. PAWS and PPROTO are Rome Laboratory developed tools. The PAWS tool is an experimental system for performing machine evaluation and comparisons. The tool provides the user with the ability to predict the performance of an application on a number of selected parallel architectures. PPROTO is a software engineering environment that allows a user to validate and analyze the requirements of parallel and distributed systems using rapid prototyping techniques. The benefit of being able to integrate the PAWS database into the PPROTO database is that high level performance prediction can be performed at the requirements phase of the software engineering lifecycle. This would provide users the capability of determining which parallel architecture would be most suitable for their particular problem domain.
