A distributed software testbed, called Shoshin, has been constructed to study the development and evaluation of distributed software. The Shoshin system consists of two PDP 11/45s and ten LSI 11/23s connected by a tailormade high-speed, parallel bus, called the Schoolbus. The Shoshin OS runs on each LSI 11/23 processor, to provide a distributed program environment. This paper describes the software architecture of the Shoshin OS, focusing on network transparent process management and interprocess communication.
