Parallel processing speed-up and efficiency results are presented for a number of widely used application packages. The packages EISPACK and LINPACK as well as seven nonnumerical programs are discussed. The performance improvements achievable on parallel processors by the automatic restructuring of programs, by manually changing the algorithms used, and by using a more flexible architecture are compared.
