Objectivies and Approach

The objective of this project is to improve distributed applications dispatch criteria using statistical information to predict workstations load. The results will be tested in two ongoing projects that run in parallel over a workstation network: the Rio de la Plata Parallel Tidal Model, developed at the University of Uruguay, and the Atmospheric General Circulation Model, developed at the university of California (UCLA).

Progress and Results

Both models described above are now running in three different architectures acquired (two of them) through the ITDC project: ethernet (10 mbit) network, FDDI (100 mbit) network and an SMP (shared memory multiprocessor). Statistical information about network tools has been gathered during the last year, and algorithms that take advantage of IT are being developed.

Information Dissemination Activities and/or Exploitation

At this moment, results about the Parallel Tidal Model have been presented in some international conferences on computational mechanics and fluid dynamics. More information about the project at http://www.fing.edu.uy/uruparallel.
