A catalog of classifying characteristics for massively parallel computers
In order to facilitate an application-oriented assessment of high-performance massively parallel computing systems, a catalog of about 350 classifying characteristics concerning the architecture and software environment of such systems has been compiled. The data required for the catalog allow a rather complete and homogeneous description of a massively parallel system to be established. This article contains an overview of the catalog and the hardware model on which it is based.
