Abstract

In a large scale parallel computation, failures of some nodes or communication links end up with waste of computing resources, Several fault-tolerant MPI libraries have been proposed so far, but the programs written by using such libraries have a portability problem since fault-tolerant features are not supported by the MPI standard yet, In this paper, we propose an application-level fault-tolerant linear system solver that uses the asynchronous iteration algorithm and the standard MPI functions only, which does not have a portability problem and is more efficient by adopting a simplified recovery mechanism.
