SAL Home PARALLEL Communication Libraries


BSPlib is a parallel SPMD programming library based on the Bulk Synchronous Parallel (BSP) programming model. BSPlib is implemented and distributed under the name of the Oxford BSP Toolset and Profiling system. The main feature of BSPlib is two modes of communication, one capturing a BSP oriented message passing approach, and the other reflecting a (one-sided) direct remote memory access paradigm. The core BSP library consists of just 20 primitives.
