Abstract : We tested the new LAN-capable sensor/actuator package by developing a monitor controller for the Piranha adaptive parallelism environment. Piranha is a system that allows processes of a parallel application to be created dynamically (for example on newly idle LAN nodes) and removed dynamically (for example, when an owner resumes work at his node) while the computation as a whole continues without interruption. Overall research results of the AFOSR Grant # F49620-92-J-0240 support include development of the underlying Pirahnna system for adaptive parallelism to manage nodes of a dedicated multiprocessor efficiently specific Network Piranha and multiprocessor (CM-5) applications and implementations, and the (ongoing) development of a practical software application called 'Lifestreams,' discussed in the attached final report.
