Summary: The mapping of parallel applications constitutes a difficult problem for which very few practical tools are available. AMEEDA has been developed in order to overcome the lack of a general-purpose mapping tool. The automatic services provided in AMEEDA include instrumentation facilities, parameter extraction modules and mapping strategies. With all these services, and a novel graph formalism called TTIG, users can apply different mapping strategies to the corresponding application through an easy-to-use GUI, and run the application on a PVM cluster using the desired mapping.
