The S/Net's Linda kernel
Nicholas Carriero, David Gelernter
Pages: 110-129
DOI: 10.1145/214419.214420
Linda is a parallel programming language that differs from other parallel languages in its simplicity and in its support for distributed data structures. The S/Net is a multicomputer, designed and built at AT&T Bell Laboratories, that is based...

VAXcluster: a closely-coupled distributed system
Nancy P. Kronenberg, Henry M. Levy, William D. Strecker
Pages: 130-146
DOI: 10.1145/214419.214421
A VAXcluster is a highly available and extensible configuration of VAX computers that operate as a single system. To achieve performance in a multicomputer environment, a new communications architecture, communications hardware, and distributed...

The integration of virtual memory management and interprocess communication in Accent
Robert Fitzgerald, Richard F. Rashid
Pages: 147-177
DOI: 10.1145/214419.214422
The integration of virtual memory management and interprocess communication in the Accent network operating system kernel is examined. The design and implementation of the Accent memory management system is discussed and its performance, both on...

A tree-structured mean value analysis algorithm
K. P. Hoyme, S. C. Bruell, P. V. Afshari, R. Y. Kain
Pages: 178-185
DOI: 10.1145/214419.214423
In a recent paper, Lam and Lien described an algorithm called tree-convolution that can reduce the space and computation time required for evaluating sparse multiclass, product-form queueing networks. In this paper, we develop an exact algorithm...
