Virtual Parallel Machines (VPMs)

mpC Virtual Parallel Machine (VPM) is a set of computers on which an mpC application is executed. Computers comprising VPM are called VPM nodes. One VPM node may execute more than one processes of a parallel application. The VPM concept allows you to treat the computers executing your parallel program as one machine, executing one program not as a number of computers executing separate processes of the parallel program.
