LAM/MPI publications and directions on how to cite LAM/MPI are available here.

LAM/MPI Documentation:
(Bibtex references)

  • A complete user's guide for LAM/MPI. Recommended reading for all users of LAM/MPI.

  • Installation guide for LAM/MPI. Although LAM/MPI can configure and build itself automatically, this document provides detailed information on building the more advanced portions of LAM/MPI.

Design Documentation:
(Full list of bibtex references)

  • An overview of the System Services Interface, the modular component system in LAM/MPI that allows easy extensibility to new environments.

  • Description and API for the SSI type responsible for launching the LAM run-time environment (e.g., the back-end to the lamboot command

  • Description and API for the SSI type implementating MPI collective functions (e.g., MPI_BARRIER, MPI_BCAST, etc.)

  • Description and API for the SSI type implementating checkpoint and restart functionality of parallel MPI applications.

  • Description and API for the SSI type implementating MPI point-to-point functions (e.g., MPI_SEND, MPI_RECV, etc.). Note that an external project at the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia fully documented LAM's TCP RPI module; their descriptions can be quite helpful for those looking to understand and/or write a new RPI. .
