> I got 2 processors that in shared memory and then
> connect with TCP/IP to another 2 processors in
shared

> I use mpisend/recv for communication, but why can't
I
> call this shared distributed memory?
> The speedup with this architecture is very low.why?

> speedup:
> 2 processor: 1.61
> 3 processor: 2.31
> 4 processor: 2.30
> actually with shared memory, the speedup is more
high
> that distributed becasue almost no cos communication
> in shared memory.right? Hope that some one can
answer my question. thanks..
