We present a novel user-space and transaction-oriented protocol for use in high-performance distributed computing applications. The TRAP protocol is designed to support low-latency communication in multithreaded message-passing libraries. To demonstrate the viability of TRAP, we implemented and tested the fully operational protocol and conducted several experiments comparing its runtime performance with that of popular communication libraries. For fairness, the experiments did not exploit the… CONTINUE READING
