Abstract

ePVM has been developed to enable PVM applications to run across multidomain clusters made up of computing nodes belonging to non-routable private networks, but connected to the Internet through publicly addressable IP front-end nodes. However, ePVM cannot relieve programmers of the classic burden tied to the problems related to the deployment of PVM runtime libraries and program executables among computational resources belonging to distinct administrative domains. This paper presents ehPVM, a lightweight software infrastructure that enables programmers to deploy ePVM applications among computational resources belonging to multidomain clusters. Thus, ePVM programmers can run their applications without having to use grid software toolkits or resources providers whose configurations usually result in being tedious and time-consuming activities.
