Symmetric Multiprocessor. A shared-memory model in which every processor is functionally identical and of equal status. Every processor has equal access to OS services such as interrupts or I/O. A Paragon MP node is not SMP, since only one processor can handle communication. SGI and Sequent computers are SMP architectures.
( ymmetric ulti rocessing) is a computer architecture that provides fast performance by making multiple processors available to complete individual processes simultaneously. Unlike asymmetrical processing, any idle processor can be assigned any task, and additional processors can be added to improve performance and handle increased loads. A variety of today's operating systems and hardware configurations are available to support SMP. Specific applications can benefit from SMP if the code provides for multithreading. SMP uses a single operating system and shares common memory and disk input/output resources. Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP Professional and many flavors of Linux and UNIX support SMP.
See Symmetric Multi-Processor (SMP). speed up The concept that more hardware can perform the same task in less time than the original system. With added hardware, speed up holds the task constant and measures time savings. (See also: scale up.)
Symmetrical Multi Processing. A computer hardware architecture which distributes the computing load over a small number of identical processors, which share memory. Very common in Unix and Windows NT/2000 systems.
Symmetric MultiProcessing - architecture of a multiprocessor machine, where all CPUs are equal and are sharing one copy of operating system. When compared to clusters, it is easier to write applications for SMP machines due to the shared memory and OS, but SMP machines are more expensive for the same number of CPU than clusters
Special Multi-Peril Policy. A business policy which combines in one contract the coverages normally purchased under several policies. Many options and endorsements are available to tailor it to the policyholder's needs.
Special Multi-Peril Policy. A package policy for commercial accounts containing four principal sections of coverage: property, liability, crime and boiler and machinery. The basic policy contains declarations, general provisions and definitions applicable to these sections. The specific coverage requirements for each section are handled by separate forms. The types of accounts eligible for this policy can be grouped in eight categories: motel/hotel, apartment house, office, mercantile, service, industrial and processing, institution and contractors. This policy is rarely used., it has been replaced in most jurisdictions by the commercial package policy (CPP).
Symmetric Multi-Processing. This term is often used for compute nodes with shared memory that are part of a larger system and where this collection of nodes forms the total system. The nodes may be organised as a ccNUMA system or as a distributed memory system of which the nodes can be programmed using OpenMP while inter-node communication should be done by message passing.
Symmetric Multiprocessing, or SMP, is a multiprocessor computer architecture where two or more identical processors are connected to a single shared main memory. Most common multiprocessor systems today use an SMP architecture.
An abbreviation for ymmetric ulti rocessing. A system that uses two or more processors is said to be a multiprocessing system. A multiprocessing system where both processors have more or less equal status (in particular, both can execute most kernel mode code) is a symmetric multiprocessing system. Some versions of OS/2 support SMP; notably a special version of OS/2 2.1, Warp Server 3, Warp Server 4, Warp Server for e-Business, and (as an option) eComStation.
Symmetric multiprocessing. Used to describe a system that has two or more processors connected via a high-bandwidth link and managed by an operating system, where each processor has equal access to I/O devices.
Abbreviation for symmetric multiprocessing. SMP is a system that has two or more microprocessors connected via a high-bandwidth link and managed by an operating system, where each microprocessor has equal access to I/O devices. This is in contrast to parallel processing, where a front-end microprocessor handles all I/O to disks, terminals, local area networks, and so on.
Symmetric multiprocessing. A system with two or more CPUs that share equal (symmetric) access to all of the facilities of a computer system, such as the memory and I/O subsystems. In an HP XC system, the use of SMP technology increases the number of CPUs (amount of computational power) available per unit of space.
Short for Symmetric Multiprocessing, a computer architecture that provides fast performance by making multiple CPUs available to complete individual processes simultaneously (multiprocessing). Unlike asymmetrical processing, any idle processor can be assigned any task, and additional CPUs can be added to improve performance and handle increased loads. A variety of specialized operating systems and hardware arrangements are available to support SMP. Specific applications can benefit from SMP if the code allows multithreading. SMP uses a single operating system and shares common memory and disk input/output resources. Both UNIX and Windows NT support SMP.
SMPs have been produced for the whole coastline of England and Wales with limits determined by natural physical processes to enable operating authorities to identify long-term sustainable policies for the coastal defence of the shoreline. Sefton has two of the SMPs: - Liverpool Bay (Great Orme to Formby Point) and Ribble Estuary (Formby Point to the River Wyre).
The Security Management Portal (SMP) is a management solution for service providers and resellers that seek to deliver comprehensive Internet security to home users and small businesses thereby generating revenues and increasing customer loyalty. With itâ€(tm)s flexible group based plan system and batch management tools you can use the SMP to support your individual security offering and deploy it to anywhere from tens to tens of thousands of subscribers. In addition, with SMP you can provide a wealth of world-class services including security and software updates, email antivirus, URL filtering and dynamic DNS quickly and with minimum investment.
An SNMP extension that includes security features, bulk retrieval, manager-to-manager communication, better definition of managed objects, improved error handling, and configurable exception reporting while running over protocols other than UDP, and requiring less memory for implementation.
