Shared Memory Compiler Development

In addition to the OpenMP compiler support from hardware vendors, software vendors and research groups are developing their own OpenMP enabled compilers:

Distributed Shared Memory Compiler Development

Several proposal have been put forward (or implemented) for extensions to OpenMP for combinations of shared and distributed memory systems.

Software Vendor Examples
Company (and URL) Parallel HPC product
Etnus, Inc. (http://www.etnus.com) TotalView™ portable multiple processor and multi-thread parallel debug tool with GUI interface
