Paper Abstract

Distributed computing provides a cost-effective solution for computation intensive problems. With the emerging of networking operating system for personal computer (PC), such as WindowsNT, it is now feasible to develop distributed computing on a network of PCs. In addition, the computing power delivered by a PC is kept increasing while the cost is decreasing. Implying that the performance/cost factor for a PC is high and the computing power delivered by the network is enormous. In this paper, we describe a software system which enables users to develop distributed computing program using the SPMD (single program multiple data) paradigm very quickly under the WindowsNT operating system. The programming model for the system is simple and a user can control the system through a graphical interface. The results show that our system provides a reasonable speedup in solving image processing problems.
