Many implementations of AM are highly hardware-specific, and in particular they usually require the support of high-performance, non-commodity "smart" network interfaces such as Myrinet  (a noteable exception being AM-UDP ). This unfortunately presents a problem when trying to run AM-based software on systems that have commodity network interface hardware, or network interfaces for which no AM implementation is readily available. This first part of this project attempts to bridge that gap by providing an AM-2 implementation that runs on MPI version 1.1 , a standard high-performance networking layer that has been widely implemented on a number of parallel systems, and is often carefully tuned by the vendor for optimal performance. We seek to provide a compatibility layer that will allow AM-based systems to quickly get up and running on virtually any MPi-enabled platform, and turn a careful eye towards maintaining the high performance provided by the MPI layer.
AMMPI is a production-quality AM layer that provides a number of features in addition to the standard AM-2 API, including a helper library for SPMD job startup and an API to access built-in networking utilization and performance statistics. It has been successfully ported to a number of parallel architectures, and porting to new architectures generally requires minimal effort. We present performance numbers for various popular systems.
