We describe the evolution of a distributed shared memory (DSM) system, Mirage, and the di culties encountered when moving the system from a Unix-based kernel on the VAX to a UNIX-based kernel on personal computers. Mirage provides a network transparent form of shared memory for a loosely coupled environment. The system hides network boundaries for processes that are accessing shared memory and is upward compatible with the Unix System V Interface De nition. This paper addresses the… CONTINUE READING
