OpenMASK - Kernels

The kernel provides the OpenMASK's services:

  • OSO dynamic creations
  • OSO et attirbutes naming
  • OSO activation
  • Communications between OSO
  • Time managing

From the programmer point of view, OpenMASK is a virtual machine masking the distribution over processes. This virtual machine is implemented by several cores, one per process. We have kernels for Irix, Linux, Windows and Macos X. Communications between kernels is done upon PVM.
