An implementation of a document retrieval system developed on Hathi-2 is described. Hathi-2 is a multiprocessor system built from IMS T800 transputers. An efficient distributed search strategy in large free text databases is derived following the ‘processor farm’ paradigm for programming parallel and distributed systems. The processor farm approach is considered for several different transputer network configurations. The main purpose of the paper is to study the applicability of this approach to transputer networks and to report on the performance figures observed for the document retrieval system.
