Scalable Unix tools on parallel processors

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The introduction of parallel processors that run a separate copy of Unix on each process has introduced new problems in managing the user`s environment. This paper discusses some generalizations of common Unix commands for managing files (e.g. 1s) and processes (e.g. ps) that are convenient and scalable. These basic tools, just like their Unix counterparts, are text-based. We also discuss a way to use these with a graphical user interface (GUI). Some notes on the implementation are provided. Prototypes of these commands are publicly available.
