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.
I need about 1200 words on the following topics without any plagiarism - it will be sent through copyscape pro before the contract expires... before my deadline... (May 5, 2013)
1. Compare and contrast the MSMP and SMP architectures in terms of:
o memory access
o I/O resources access
o 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.
