 Abstract: Performance of communication mechanisms is very important in distributed systems frameworks, especially when the aim is to provide a particular type of behavior across a network. In this paper, performance measurements of the distributed Communicating Process Architectures networking protocol and stack is presented. The results presented show that for general communication, the distributed CPA architecture is close to the baseline network performance, although when dealing with parallel speedup for the Mandelbrot set, little performance is gained. A discussion into the future direction of the distributed CPA architecture and protocol in relation to occam-π and other runtimes is also presented.
