| This paper describes the design, implementation and performance of the NX messagepassing interface on the Shrimp multicomputer. Unlike traditional methods, our implementation, exploiting Shrimp's virtual memory-mapped communication facility, performs bu er management at user level without using a special message-passing processor, and requires no CPU intervention upon message arrival in the common cases. For a four-byte message, our implementation achieves a user-to-user latency of 12… CONTINUE READING
