Abstract

A reconfigurable network interface called RHiNET-2/NIO is developed for parallel processing of PCs distributed within one or more floors of a building. Two configurations: the HS (High Speed) configuration with only a high-speed primitive and the DSM (Distributed Shared Memory) configuration which supports sophisticated primitives can be selected by the network requirement. From the empirical evaluation, it appears that the HS configuration markedly improves the latency of data transfer compared with traditional network interfaces. On the other hand, the DSM configuration executes sophisticated primitives for distributed shared memory more than twice as fast as that of software implementation.
