Programming distributed memory systems with message passing forces the user to implement remote memory access by explicit send and receive operations. Shared Virtual Memory systems free him from this task; nevertheless, he is still responsible to optimize data locality by selecting a well-suited work distribution. We describe a programming environment that is based on the Advanced Shared Virtual Memory system, a shared virtual memory implementation for the Intel Paragon, and on SVM-Fortran, a shared memory parallel programming language with language constructs for work distribution. Programming tools integrate program text and run time data to help the user in optimizing data locality.
