Abstract

The Cedar system is a clustered shared-memory multiprocessor system. The architecture and the main system features of the Cedar system were designed to meet the following goals: (1) to be a general-purpose high-performance machine for parallel processing; (2) to be scalable both architecturally and physically to a very large system; and (3) to be easy to program with a good environment for user support. To achieve these design goals, software on the Cedar system plays a very important role. The authors describe the relations between the software and the underlying hardware, including the architecture, on the Cedar system.
