Parallel Operating System Prototype

Qafyr is a prototypical implementation for a massive parallel system with a large number of processing units that do not share memory.

The current version is simulation based, both source code and an emulator, as well as the necessary compiler and build chain are included.

Unpack the tar archive and follow README instructions.



For a detailed description of the topic see the paper on

Parallel Architecture Hardware and General Purpose Operating System Co-design

There is an older hardware based pre-study.
