Abstract

An RPC implementation is described which uses a small network of Transputers as a parallel front end processor to reduce communications delays. Parallel processing allows different aspects of the protocol support and parameter marshalling to be overlapped. Particular attention is paid to issues which affect the performance of the system. Some comparisons are drawn with the ANSAware distributed systems platform.
