The study of communication designs in the context of the Raid system, a robust and adaptable distributed database system for transaction processing, is discussed. Related research work on local interprocess communication, remote interprocess communication, and communication protocols for both local area and wide area networks is briefly summarized. A series of experiments on the performance of the facilities available for building the Raid communication software is described. Raid's communication software, called Raidcomm, has evolved as a result of the knowledge gained both from other systems and from the authors' experiments. Several communication services and mechanisms that can be used to make Raid efficient are identified.<>
