The Message Passing Interface (MPI) can be used as a portable, high-performance programming model for wide-area computing systems. The wide-area environment introduces challenging problems for the MPI implementor, due to the heterogeneity of both the underlying physical infrastructure and the software environment at di erent sites. In this article, we describe an MPI implementation that incorporates solutions to these problems. This implementation has been constructed by extending the Argonne… CONTINUE READING
