  abstract= "We present a tight integration of a user-level thread
     scheduler and a zero-copy messaging system that has been
     designed and optimized for scalable and efficient fine-grain
     parallel processing, on commodity platforms, with support
     for fault-tolerance. The system delivers most of the
     performance of the underlying communication hardware to a
     multi-threaded application level, while introducing little
     CPU overhead. This is demonstrated by a performance analysis
     of an implementation using off-the-shelf commodity products:
     PCs, running the Linux operating system, equipped with Fast
     and Gigabit Ethernet network interface cards."
