We introduce Remote Queues (RQ), a communication model that integrates polling with selective interrupts to support a wide range of applications and communication paradigms. We show that polling is desirable for a range of applications for both performance and atomicity. Polling enables optimizations that are essential for fine-grain applications such as(More)
This paper examines the plausibility of using a network of workstations (NOW) for a mixture of parallel and sequential jobs. Through simulations, our study examines issues that arise when combining these two workloads on a single platform. Starting from a dedicated NOW just for parallel programs, we incrementally relax uniprogramming restrictions until we(More)
