Parallel Method Invocation (PMI)
Definition - What does Parallel Method Invocation (PMI) mean?
The core concept is for a single caller to invoke the same function multiple times in parallel to allow for parallel execution and speed up whatever the process is meant to accomplish.
Techopedia explains Parallel Method Invocation (PMI)
In Python programming, PMI is a module which helps foster parallel computing by joining together the fork-join model and message passing concepts for process communication in parallel computing. In Big Data Analytics, analytics providers and programmers have implemented a PMI method through an API which allows the application to call map/reduce methods in parallel and have them executed in different grid servers in parallel and the results merged afterward. This significantly reduces report generation time.
