Programming for Observability Support in a Parallel Programming Environment


Francesco Gregoretti, Zary Segall

November 1985

The programming for observability concept for performance/correctness debugging in a parallel programming environment is introduced. The design, first implementation, and evaluation of the required language and system support is presented. A two dimensional, multilevel, integrated monitoring system is described. Distinction is made between the monitoring mechanism, monitoring policies and their implementation tradeoffs. PIEMON-1, an initial implementation of the presented design, is outlined and evaluated.
