PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report summarizes the third phase of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Intel in evaluating a 28-node Intel Paragon MP system. An MP node consists of three 50-MHz i860XP`s sharing a common bus to memory and to the mesh communications interface. The performance of the shared-memory MP node is measured and compared with other shared-memory multiprocessors. Bus contention is measured between processors and with message passing. Recent improvements in message passing and I/O are also reported.
