Smith, Graham Leslie (1993) A distributed Linda server on a network of heterogeneous processors. Masters thesis, Rhodes University.
Linda is an approach to parallelism which relies on a virtual associative shared memory called tuple space. Tuple space is accessed through a small set of primitive operations and is conceptually easy to understand and manipulate. The physical implementation of a Linda tuple space may of course be completely different from the conceptual model. Rhodes has implemented versions of Linda on a ring of RS-232 joined PC's and on a cluster of T800 transputers with a single copy of tuple space on one transputer. Current research targets the implementation of a distributed Linda server on a network of heterogeneous processors. This work describes the design and implementation of a distributed Linda server. Emphasis is placed on aspects of the design which enhance portability and efficiency.
