NXLib is an Intel Paragon parallel programming environment on a network of workstations.

The NXLib environment allows for using a network of workstations for mainly two purposes. First, the network of workstations can be used to develop software which should finally run on a Paragon system. Workload can therefore be withdrawn from the multiprocessor system. The CPU time which is gained by shifting the development of applications to workstations can be used for production runs of computational intensive problems. Second, instead of using the workstations merely as a development platform they can also be used as a production environment for certain applications. Especially coarse grain applications can achieve good speed-ups on a workstation environment.
