ion of running on a single shared memory multiprocessor, Brazos supports message passing by implementing the MPI library [20]. Thread migration in the context of a distributed system involves the movement of a computation thread from one currently executing process to another running process. Thread migration has been previously proposed as a tool for load-balancing and communication reduction in distributed shared memory systems [13, 23]. Our work extends the use of thread migration to fault… CONTINUE READING
