Abstract Two numerical problems, namely, the tridiagonal linear system (TLS) and Poisson's equation, have been implemented on the Sun network with different methods for interprocess communication. Remote procedure calls have been used under an environment containing two processing elements in solving the TLS, and the results show that the speed improves by a factor of 1.63. The Poisson equation is solved using a distributed shared memory method and although it is clear that this method is useful for distributed applications, its performance is worse than expected unless task scheduling and resource allocation protocols are better controlled.
