Remote Shared Memory API for Solaris Clusters

Solaris Cluster OS systems can be configured with a memory-based interconnect such as Dolphin-SCI and layered system software components. These components implement a mechanism for user-level inter-node messaging that is based on direct access to memory residing on remote nodes. This mechanism is referred to as Remote Shared Memory (RSM). This chapter defines the RSM Application Programming Interface (RSMAPI).
