Psyche is a parallel operating system under development at the University of Rochester. The Psyche user interface is designed to allow programs with widely differing concepts of process, sharing, protection, and communication to run efficiently on the same machine, and to interact in meaningful ways. In addition, the Psyche implementation effort is addressing a host of systems issues for large-scale shared-memory multiprocessors, including remote access to kernel data structures; the… CONTINUE READING
