This paper presents the results of an investigation of collective communication operations for distributed computing across asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks. Several collective operations have been implemented and studied on a three-switch ATM network testbed at Michigan State University. The methods use virtual topologies constructed from ATM virtual channels. A particular type of virtual topology is described that efficiently implements several collective operations through the use of hardware-supported ATM multicast channels. Performance measurements are presented that illustrate how a thread-based software design can take advantage of such underlying hardware features
