A Multiprocessor OCCAM Development System for UNIX Network Clusters

Authors: Patrick, D. G., Green, P. R., York, T. A.


This paper describes the OCCNIX multiprocessor environment, that enables OCCAM program development and testing, on clusters of UNIX workstations. Linked binary level interpreters form a virtual Transputer network that uses the TCP/IP client-server model and provides hardware independent multiple platform access in a similar way to the recently released JAVA. Results show a single processor performance that is half that of an actual Transputer and a four-processor speedup of 0.78. The system also has the ability to run development tools such as the ISPY network debugger.
