%X 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.
