This paper presents the design and implementation of DECK-SCI, a multithreaded communication library that fully exploits the high-performance capabilities of the SCI technology. We compare DECK-SCI, in terms of performance , to a commercially distributed MPI implementation and to a freely available MPICH distribution, both specifically designed for SCI(More)
— The SCI standard was proposed in 1992 to be a high performance bus for processor interconnection in multicomputers. With the growing popularity of cluster architectures, the standard was implemented in PCI cards and offered as a flexible an efficient alternative for the construction of parallel systems. After some initial difficulties, like(More)
This paper presents a performance evaluation of DECK (Distributed Execution and Communication Kernel), a multithreaded parallel programming environment for clusters of SMPs, with the parallel implementation of the classical Man-delbrot fractal generation and Laplace's Equation algorithms. The applications have been run on Myrinet and SCI clusters and the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess care during labor and delivery in habitual risk maternity units in a capital in southern Brazil. METHOD It is an evaluation research, retrospective, quantitative, developed in three hospitals. The variables relating to the Bologna Score (presence of a companion, use of partograph, absence of stimulation to labor, delivery in non-supine(More)
