Process Migration: Effects on Scientific Computation

Maguire, Gerald Q.; Smith, Jonathan M.

This report describes the notion of process migration. and points out certain vulnerabilities to architectural assumptions. Computationally intensive processes, typified by scientific computations, are among the best candidates for migration. In architecturally heterogeneous systems, these processes face particular problems due to their dependence on architectural features such as "machine precision". We point out some of these problems. and suggest some solutions.
