Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


At the initial stage of developing parallel machines, a software monitor, which manages communication between host computers, program loading and debugging, is necessary. However, it is often a cumbersome job to develop such a monitoring system especially when the target takes a parallel architecture. To solve this problem, we developed an integrated monitor system called "Pot". "Pot" consists of a system runs on the host computer and simple code on a target machine. In order to reduce the development costs, the program on a target machine is as simple as possible while "Pot" on the host computer itself provides various functions for system development.
