Athanasios I. Margaris

Abstract


The objective of this paper is the short description of the LAM (Local Area Multicomputer) implementation of MPI that can be used for the development of parallel applications based on the message passing interface. The paper describes the main aspects of the LAM environment such as the LAM architecture, configuration and use. A comparison between the LAM and the MPICH implementation (another very popular and commonly used MPI implementation) with respect to their performance is also presented.
