Understanding Multi-transputer Execution

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


An understanding of parallel execution as good as, if not better than, our current understanding of conventional von Neumann execution is required in order to exploit the potential offered by multi-Transputer and other parallel systems.

ParSiFal's GRAIL display and occam profiling tools have been recognized as providing valuable visualization of how occam programs execute in Transputer arrays.

Here I explain how the GRAIL interface has been designed and used to enhance understanding of occam program structure and activity.
