Abstract: The results of parallelizing a classical ray tracer in a typical LAN-connected workstation environment is presented. The motivation of this work is to utilize the idle workstation cycles at night. Issues involved in distributing the processing of a ray tracer are discussed and our solutions are presented. Performance tests are carried out on a group of homogeneous and heterogeneous workstations. Initial results showed that the achievable speedup is comparable to some of the parallel approaches on dedicated MIMD systems.
