Our group want to analyze and realize VIA specification in Myrinet hardware and develop MPI for VIA. The highest performance and stability of VIA implement are our main aims. Now the performance of MyVIA is very good(hardware: SMP AMD athlon, 512MB mem, 64bit/66Mhz PCI bus, Myrinet2000&133Mhz Lanai9; software: linux2.4.7, RedHat7.2), and it could reach 250MB/s for 4096 Byte message. We are also developing MPI for MyVIA, and the first prototype was finished, and it can pass almost all test programs in MPICH. We will improve the performance and stability of MPI for MyVIA.
