We claim in this paper that both remote process creation and process migration are efficient mechanisms to be used in the improvement or development of high performance computer systems. In particular, we demonstrate that the claims made by some researchers that process migration is too heavy to be used to support dynamic load balancing are unsubstantiated. We support our claim by presenting these two mechanisms available in the RHODOS distributed operating system, comparing and contrasting these mechanisms and reporting on their performance.
