Susan Stepney. Understanding Multi-transputer Execution.

IT UK 88, University College Swansea, UK . 1988.


An understanding of parallel execution as good as, if not better than, our current understanding of conventional von Neumann execution is required in order to exploit the potential offered by multi-Transputer and other parallel systems.

ParSiFal's GRAIL display and occam profiling tools have been recognized as providing valuable visualization of how occam programs execute in Transputer arrays.

Here I explain how the GRAIL interface has been designed and used to enhance understanding of occam program structure and activity.
