The remote procedure call (RPC) paradigm has been a favorite of programmers who write distributed programs because RPC uses a familiar procedure call abstraction as the sole mechanism of remote operation. The abstraction helps to simplify programming tasks, but this does not mean that the resulting program's RPC-based flow of control will be anything close to ideal for high performance. The purpose of our research is to provide a source-level transformation framework as an alternative way to implement an RPC-based distributed program, so that the code can be optimized through program analysis techniques.
