PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED CALCULATIONS SUPPORTED AND MANAGED BY THE RELATIONAL DATABASE
Keywords:parallel calculations, relational database, master/slave model
AbstractA simple, based on a relational database, system, for a management of a parallel and a distributedcomputer calculations, is presented. In the proposed system, the parallel calculationsare carried out according to a master/slave model. Because an input and an output data ofprograms are stored directly in the database, the use of files is reduced to a minimum. Themanagement system allows for a combination of computing power of many computers forsolving a single numerical problem.
