GASOLINE has been ported to nearly every parallel platform in existence during the last 10 years:

  • PVM

  • MPI

  • KSR

  • T3D/E Shmem

  • Convex Exemplar

  • POSIX Threads

  • Quadrics Shmem

  • XT3! (MPI)

GASOLINE

MDL

MDL

GASOLINE is able to adapt to new architectures by conducting all parallel operations though a Machine Dependent Library (MDL) that contains all machine-specific parallel functions.

Communication

The MDL is rewritten for each architecture, allowing GASOLINE to take advantage of the strength of each new generation of parallel machines!
