Volume Multi-Processor Systems: Part 1
Ace's Hardware has a new article online, Volume Multi-Processor Systems: Part 1, as the first part in a series on MP system and software architecture. This first part discusses server and workstation sizing, multi-processor scalability and issues like cache coherency, multi-processor/multi-threaded server benchmarks, the usefulness of 64-bit CPUs, and much more. Some of the highlights include scalability comparisons using the SPECint_rate/fp_rate and SPECjbb2000 benchmarks, as well as an overview of database server workloads and the relationship between speed and volume in CPU manufacturing.
