In this paper, we report on the performance of the remote procedure call implementation for the Firefly multiprocessor and analyze the implementation to account precisely for all measured latency. From the analysis and measurements, we estimate how much faster RPC could be if certain improvements were made. The elapsed time for an inter-machine call to a remote procedure that accepts no arguments and produces no results is 2.66 milliseconds. The elapsed time for an RPC that has a single 1440… CONTINUE READING
