Abstract

A 32-node Meiko CS-2 MIMD machine has been installed at CERN as part of an ESPRIT project funded by the European Community. It is intended that this machine be used by CERN to run codes developed at CERN and elsewhere and to thereby demonstrate the feasibility of using a CS-2 in a demanding high energy physics environment. One part of the project deals with interactive data analysis using PIAF (Parallel Interactive Analysis Facility), a system developed at CERN for carrying out queries on very large databases of several gigabytes in parallel [1].
