Cray Releases UNICOS 7
Cray Research, Inc., has released UNICOS 7, the latest
its UNIX-based operating system. UNICOS 7 is based on
system V with Berkeley extensions, and includes tools
for system managers,
programmers, and end-users, designed to exploit supercomputer
UNICOS provides the Application Development Toolset,
of tools that provide program performance statistics
in a visual format.
One of the tools from the Toolset is ATExpert, an expert
an X-Window System user interface. ATExpert analyzes
potential parallel performance and displays performance
as an on-screen plotted graph. ATExpert interprets the
data and offers
suggested actions to enhance parallel performance. Xbrowse,
Toolset component, supports Fortran source code editing
This language-sensitive browser provides information
at the routine,
the file, or the whole program level, and includes variable
and parallel processing analysis information.
UNICOS 7 supports the full Cray product line, including
the CRAY Y-MP
C90 system. UNICOS 7 will provide the base development
and operational support for the massively parallel processing
system, which will closely couple MPP technology with
the CRAY Y-MP
parallel/vector architecture. Contact Cray Research,

and 450ST mini-towers, and applicationDEC 400XP tower
Microport System V/4 is based on UNIX System V Release
4.0 from UNIX
System Laborartories and supports Digital PC designs
which use Intel's
Express motherboard architectures with Digital's graphics,
networking chip sets and adapters. Microport provides
what it describes
as a "seamless" DOS-under-UNIX capability,
to run DOS and UNIX at the same time without rebooting.
Workstation-style graphics are supported under System
V/4, with X
Window (X11R4) and OSF Motif servers for 256 color and
using the Appian chip sets and adapters provided by
System V/4 graphics support also includes IXI's tool,

Programmed Logic Introduces High Performance File System
Programmed Logic Corporation has upgraded its High Performance
System (HPFS) for Intel-based PCs running UNIX System
V Release 4
or Univel's UNIXWare. Programmed Logic describes HPFS
as an SVR4-compatible
file system that can double system throughput, as measured
SDET benchmark. HPFS maintains plug-compatibility and
with the UFS file system, USL's version of the University
at Berkeley's Fast File System. Users don't have to
back up and restore
their files, they only need to plug in the new HPFS
When using HPFS, various critical file system resources
automatically. HPFS incorporates meta-data management
to SVR4's file system algorithms that address the bottleneck
caused by CPUs waiting for I/O.
Users can power off after exiting applications without
systems when the system is rebooted. The majority of
crashes and powerfails
will not result in lengthy reboot procedures.
HPFS runs on versions of UNIX based on USL's SVR4. This
and versions of SVR4 from Consensys, Dell, ESIX, Microport,
A multi-processor version is also available for systems
based on the
Intel Consortium's SVR4-MP porting base.
The cost is $249 for single user, $499 for multi-user
and $999 for
multi-processor versions. Contact Programmed Logic Corporation,
