High message-latency in distributed machines is ameliorated by sending messages asynchronously, and by sending large packets of related data in each message. Initial performance figures demonstrate absolute speedups relative to the best sequential compiler technology. To improve the performance of a parallel Haskell program GUM provides tools for monitoring and visualising the behaviour of threads and of PEs during execution.
