CS267: Lecture 6

Distributed Memory Multiprocessors

September 17, 2001

Lecturer: Matt Welsh

Abstract

We discuss some of the history of large scale, distributed memory multiprocessors and their networks.  We give a brief overview of programming these machines (both point-to-point and collective communication operations).  Finally, we describe some of the current machines, including the Berkeley Millennium cluster, that are based on clusters of workstations.
