Lightweight threads have an important role to play in parallel systems: they can be used to exploit shared-memory parallelism, to mask communication and I/O latencies, to implement remote memory access, and to support task-parallel and irregular applications. In this paper, we address the question of how to integrate threads and communication in high-performance distributed-memory systems. We propose an approach based on global pointer and remote service request mechanisms, and explain howdoi:10.1006/jpdc.1996.0108 fatcat:kp25veq36fcm5mpv6rzq655xbe
