ABSTRACT
As symmetric multiprocessors become commonplace, there are a number of factors
affecting the performance of parallel applications, including the application characteristics,
parallel programming paradigms used by the applications, and the machine system's
architecture. In recent years, with the introduction of high speed networks, the high
performance computing community has seen a trend to use network-based computing
systems such as cluster of symmetric multiprocessors. In such systems, the communication
subsystems become another crucial factor which affects the application performance.
