An investigation is presented on a controlled parallel processing environment based upon the Linda paradigm, a conceptually simple programming and operational framework. The environment utilizes the unused computing resources available on a network of computers to provide a low-cost parallel processing solution. The environment efficiently and effectively manages system resources via a centralized control subsystem. A detailed overview of the environment executing on a local area network is presented along with an analysis on its control subsystem. In addition, the control subsystem's execution characteristics of stability and scalability are substantiated
