Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An application programming interface (API) was developed for executing parallel jobs in distributed computer systems. The scheme was implemented through design of an interface which provided dynamic establishment of communication links between processes. Synchronization of the parallel database access was achieved through the fence operation which also allowed scalable initialization of parallel jobs.
