Summary:
In recent years multiprocessor systems are becoming increasingly important in critical applications. In particular, their fault tolerance properties are of great importance for their ability to be used in these type of applications. We have developed a multiprocessor simulator that can be used to test different fault detection algorithms. The processors must have four communication links. This simulator operates by passing messages between processors. An algorithm was developed for routing the messages among the processors. The simulator can also be used to try different reconfiguration strategies. In particular we have tested Malek's comparison algorithm using different multiprocessor configurations. We also developed a program which determines the configuration of an unknown network of transputers.
