PVM and MPI have often been compared regarding their functionality and performance from the users' point of view. In this paper, however, we will present some comparison from a tool developer's point of view. We will show how a supporting infrastructure — the OMIS compliant monitoring system OCM — can be implemented for both PVM and MPI. Thus, we will put light onto those features of PVM and MPI that support the implementation of on-line tools.
