Question description

Assignment 2: Multiprocessing

Increasing the number of CPUs in a computer system tends to increase system performance. There are different types of multiprocessor architectures available today. These include the master-slave multiprocessing (MSMP) architecture and symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) architecture.

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Compare and contrast the MSMP and SMP architectures in terms of:
    • memory access
    • I/O resources access
    • instruction execution throughput
  2. Hyperthreading refers to the parallel execution two (2) or more threads simultaneously. Determine if hyperthreading is possible with MSMP and SMP. Support your answer.
  3. Evaluate the type of applications that the MSMP architecture is well suited for. Explain why these applications are well suited for this architecture.
  4. Evaluate the type of applications the SMP architecture is well suited for. Explain why these applications are well suited for this architecture.
  5. Use at least five (5) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
