Description : Global Arrays Toolkit
The Global Arrays Toolkit consists of the following:
GA (Global Arrays) is a portable Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA)
shared-memory programming environment for distributed and shared memory
computers. It augments the message-passing model by providing a
shared-memory like access to distributed dense arrays.
ARMCI (Aggregate Remote Memory Copy Interface) provides one-sided remote
memory operations used by GA.
DRA (Disk Resident Arrays) is a parallel I/O library that maintains
dense 2-dim arrays on disk.
SF (Shared Files) is a parallel I/O library that allows noncollective
I/O to a parallel file.
EAF (Exclusive Access Files) is parallel I/O library that supports I/O
to private files.
TCGMSG is a simple, efficient, but becoming obsolete message-passing
TCGMSG-MPI is a TCGMSG interface implementation on top of MPI and ARMCI.
MA is a dynamic memory allocator/manager for Fortran and C programs.
GA++ is a C++ binding for global arrays.
Three libraries are built, libga, libga++ and libarmci.
