Presto is distinguished from most other thread systems in that it is structured for flexibility. Presto is easy to adapt to application-specific needs because it presents a uniform object-oriented interface to threads, synchronization, and scheduling. The object-oriented design of Presto encourages multiple implementations of the thread management functions and so offers the flexibility to efficiently accommodate differing parallel programming needs. Presto has been tuned to perform well on a multiprocessor. Presto does not provide true two-level scheduling. The base operating system, schedules the underlying virtual processors (qtd. inAnderson16). (more…)
