The Architecture of Vistle, a Scalable Distributed Visualization System.
M. Aumüller. EASC, Volume 8759 von Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Seite 141-147. Springer, (2014)
Vistle is a scalable distributed implementation of the visualization pipeline. Modules are realized as MPI processes on a cluster. Within a node, different modules communicate via shared memory. TCP is used for communication between clusters.
Vistle targets especially interactive visualization in immersive virtual environments. For low latency, a combination of parallel remote and local rendering is possible.
