Medium Grained Execution in Concurrent Object Oriented Systems
Workshop on Efficient Implementation of Concurrent Object Oriented Languages at OOPSLA 1993
Publication Type: Paper
We present arguments for the adequacy of medium grained execution for concurrent object oriented systems such as Charm++ on current stock multicomputers. We briefly describe Charm++ and present performance data for two of its basic primitives. We argue that although grainsize decisions must be made by the programmer, they remain portable across different machines and with different numbers of processors.
