Definitions for "Non-Uniform Memory Access"
Non-Uniform Memory Access means that it will take longer to access some regions of memory than others. This is because some regions of memory are on physically different busses from other regions.
A computer memory design that has a single physical address space, but in which parts of memory take longer to access than other parts. In the SN0, memory in the local node is accessed fastest; memory in another node takes longer by about 100 nanoseconds per router.
A multiprocessing architecture where each processor or small group of processors has its own group of memory chips. Accessing memory local to the processor...
