Message-based MIMD computers that support arbitrary connections over a small number of communications links cannot support parallel applications with complex communication patterns unless the support software includes message routing. This paper describes design issues for such software, using a router for the Inmos TSOO transputer called Tiny as an example. Performance figures show that Tiny achieves near optimal routing performance given the hardware limits. Modifications to Tiny to monitor… CONTINUE READING
