The worldwide computing infrastructure on the growing computer network technology is a leading technology to make a v ariety of information services accessible through the Internet for every users from the high performance computing users through many of personal computing users. The important feature of such services is location transparency; information(More)
Over the last twenty years, the open source community has provided more and more software on which the world's High Performance Computing (HPC) systems depend for performance and productivity. The community has invested millions of dollars and years of effort to build key components. But although the investments in these separate software elements have been(More)
Ninf is an ongoing global network-wide computing infrastructure project which allows users to access computational resources including hardware , software and scientific data distributed across a wide area network. Ninf is intended not only to exploit high performance in network parallel computing, but also to provide high quality numerical computation(More)
In this paper, we propose a software testing environment, called D-Cloud, using cloud computing technology and virtual machines with fault injection facility. Nevertheless, the importance of high dependability in a software system has recently increased, and exhaustive testing of software systems is becoming expensive and time-consuming, and, in many cases,(More)
It has become important to improve the energy efficiency of high performance PC clusters. In PC clusters, high-performance microprocessors have a dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) mechanism, which allows the voltage and frequency to be set for reduction in energy consumption. In this paper, we proposed a new algorithm that reduces energy(More)
We have designed and implemented a Grid RPC system called OmniRPC, for parallel programming in cluster and grid environments. While OmniRPC inherits its API from Ninf, the programmer can use OpenMP for easy-to-use parallel programming because the API is designed to be thread-safe. To support typical master-worker grid applications such as a parametric(More)
In this paper, we present a design of OpenMP compiler for an SMP cluster. Although clusters of SMPs are expected to be one of the cost-eective parallel computing platforms, both of inter and intra node paral-lelism must be exploited to achieve high performance. These two levels of structure complicate parallel programming. The OpenMP is an emerging standard(More)
We have developed a new communication library, called PM, for the Myrinet gigabit LAN card, that has a dedicated processor and on-board memory to handle a communication protocol. In order to obtain high performance communication and support a multiuser environment , we have co-desgined PM, an operating system realized by a daemon process, and the run-time(More)
Omni remote procedure call facility, OmniRPC, is a thread-safe grid RPC facility for cluster and global computing environments. The remote libraries are implemented as executable programs in each remote computer, and OmniRPC automatically allocates remote library calls dynamically on appropriate remote computers to facilitate location transparency. We(More)
