We conducted research and development of Distributed Supercomputing Environment (DSE) based on distributed shared memory model to serve as a cluster computing environment to provide parallel processing facilities. Shared memory model and message passing model are well-known typical models of parallel processing. It is desired that hybrid programming environment will make the best use of the prominent features of both models. Consequently, we add a new message passing mechanism to present DSE, and create a prototype called Hybrid DSE as a hybrid model based cluster computing environment. In this paper, we describe the implementation of a message passing mechanism on DSE and performance evaluation of Hybrid DSE.
