By running applications and meastlring data transmission rate on the workstation cluster POE, the paper analyzed the performance of the communication mechanism and brought up some methods to optimize the performance. A communication mechanism supporting high speed data transmission was suggested to be of reduced protocol,fair topology and special communication process unit,etc.
With the development of microprocessor and network technology, computing environment, exemplified by cluster of workstations, has come to be one of the hot-spots in the study of parallel computing system.
Matrix multiple Cannon parallel algorithm is a kind of parallel algorithm based on the distributed memory and multiprocessor model. This paper sets out to an analysis of its implementation on the cluster of workstations.
