PVM: Parallel Virtual Machine: A Users' Guide and Tutorial for Network Parallel Computing (Al Geist, et al)

This tutorial, which was created by the software's development team, is the go-to guide for anyone looking to utilize PVM to enhance the flexibility and power of their high-performance computing resources, including researchers, engineers, and other computer users.

This book gives an overview of PVM, a tutorial on setting up and running existing programs, an introduction to basic programming techniques, including integrating PVM into existing code, as well as information on where and how to obtain the PVM software. It also covers networked computing. Program examples, information on how PVM operates on UNIX and multiprocessor platforms, advanced subjects (portability, debugging, performance optimization), and troubleshooting are all included.

A networked heterogeneous collection of serial, parallel, and vector computers can be defined as one huge computer using the PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) software program. It can be utilized both independently and as a base for additional heterogeneous network applications. Sequential processors, vector processors, and multicomputer are just a few of the machine designs that PVM can be set to include. It can also be adapted to any future emerging computer architectures.
