A Network of Workstations (NOW) is emerging as a costeffective solution to high performance computing. However, we need to lower the cost of communicating between the workstations to make this platform viable. With the advent of high-performance networks such as ATM and Myrinet, the physical network is no longer the communication bottleneck. Rather, the major overhead can now be attributed to software. This overhead is a direct result of the cost that a message incurs as it travels throughdoi:10.1007/bfb0052205 fatcat:b4oilctusrbhflyg3ffx3ycope
