High-performance execution in distributed computing environments often requires careful selection and connguration not only of computers, networks, and other resources but also of the protocols and algorithms used by applications. Selection and connguration in turn require access to accurate, up-to-date information on the structure and state of available resources. Unfortunately, no standard mechanism exists for organizing or accessing such information. Consequently, diierent tools and… CONTINUE READING
