  abstract= "This paper describes an experimental system which can be
     used to study and compare the behaviour of different process
     migration strategies for occam programs running on
     transputer machines. The approach taken involves loading the
     code and data for every process onto every transputer.
     Processes can then be enabled and disabled to reflect the
     initial placement and subsequently to reflect process
     migrations. While simplifying the implementation process
     this means that the entire program must fit onto a single
     transputer. A statistics collection mechanism has also been
     implemented to enable intelligent migration decisions to be
     made. The system has been verified using a random migration
     strategy on several candidate programs."
