MPICH2: A new start for MPI implementations. This talk will describe MPICH2, an all-new implementation of MPI designed to support both MPI-1 and MPI-2 and to enable further research into MPI implementation technology. To achieve high-performance and scalability and to encourage experimentation, the design of MPICH2 is strongly modular. For example, the MPI topology routines can easily be replaced by implementations tuned to a specific environment, such as a geographically dispersed computational grid. The interface to the communication layers has been designed to exploit modern interconnects that are capable of remote memory access but can be implemented on older networks. An initial, TCP-based implementation, will be described in detail, illustrating the use of a simple, communication-channel interface. A multi-method device that provides TCP, VIA, and shared memory communication will also be discussed.
