Supporting Large Scale Applications on Networks of Workstations

Abstract

Distributed applications on networks of workstations are an increasingly common way to satisfy computing needs. However existing mechanisms for distributed programming exhibit poor performance and reliability as application size increases. The ISIS distributed programming system is being extended to support large scale distributed applications by providing hierarchical process gr(,ups. The principal idea is to incorporate hierarchy in the program structure and exploit this to limit the communication and storage required in any one component of the distributed program.
