i would just like to ask some question that have been bugging my mind:

-is the master-slave model for parallel programming the most frequently
used model?
-is SCALAPACK implemented as master-slave?
-is PETSc implemented as master-slave?
-does benchmark tests like LINPACK and HPL test for node-node or pairwise
bandwidth on all the nodes?

-was is the most commonly used non master-slave model being use by you?

thanks for your time. i am exploring the possibilities for different types
of parallel programming paradigms.
