Abstract:

The objective of this research effort was to develop a tool to simulate various parallel computer systems. The tools would give users insight into the differ classes of parallel machines in terms of architecture, software, synchronization, communication, efficiency, connectivity, and application specialties. In addition it would give valuable information towards the development of languages and tools which can be used independently of the machine architecture. This work would contribute to objectives set by the Software for High Performance Computers Group at Rome Laboratory, namely a developing technology for general purpose parallel computing and b developing methods for predicting parallel software performance. The tool would be compatible with the Parallel Experimentation and Evaluation Platform PEEP at Rome, in particular totally compatible with X Windows workstations.
