At the time of writing several portable implementations
of MPI exist,
the MPICH implementation from Argonne National
Laboratory and Mississippi
State University ,
available by anonymous ftp at info.mcs.anl.gov/pub/mpi.
This version is layered on PVM or P4 and can be run on many systems.
The CHIMP implementation from Edinburgh Parallel Computing Center,
available by anonymous ftp at
the LAM implementation from the Ohio Supercomputing Center,
a full MPI standard implementation using LAM, a UNIX
cluster computing environment. Available by anonymous ftp
UNIFY system provides a subset of MPI within the PVM environment,
without sacrificing the PVM calls already available.
Available by anonymous ftp at ftp.erc.msstate.edu/unify.
In addition, hardware-specific MPI implementations exist for the
Cray T3D, the IBM SP-2, The NEC Cinju, and the Fujitsu AP1000.
Information on MPI implementations and other useful
information on MPI can be found on the MPI web pages
at Argonne National Laboratory (http://www.mcs.anl.gov/mpi),
and at Mississippi State Univ (http://www.erc.msstate.edu/mpi). Additional information can be found on the
newsgroup comp.parallel.mpi and on netlib.
