This paper describes the design and implementation of the virtual memory-mapped communication model (VMMC) on a Myrinet network of PCI-based PCs. VMMC has been designed and implemented for the SHRIMP multicomputer where it delivers user-to-user latency and bandwidth close to the limits imposed by the underlying hardware. The goal of this work is to provide an implementation of VMMC on a commercially available hardware platform; to determine whether the benefits of VMMC can be realized on the… CONTINUE READING
