The Cell Messaging Layer is an extremely fast, MPI-like communication library for clusters of Cell Broadband Engine processors. With it, any Cell synergistic processing element (SPE) can communicate directly with any other SPE, even across a network.
The High Performance Computing Tools group (HPCTools) is a research group in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Houston. The group was created by Dr. Barbara Chapman who joined the department in the Spring of 1999. Our mission is to perform cutting-edge research in compiler and tools for High performance computing systems. We are also part of the OpenMP community and take part in the OpenMP ARB committees.
