Getting Ready for CMT
By nk on Aug 30, 2005
I have been working on performance of computing systems for about 20 years. Earlier this year, I documented operating system and development system requirements for the transition to CMT processors.
CMT systems are next step in computing systems started with multi-board processors, and followed by, microprocessors, SMP, and NUMA SMP. Just as each generation of systems before it, CMT presents new challenges for computer professionals.
As my blog introduction, I am posting Operating Systems and Development Systems for Chip-Multi-Threading Processors which provides requirements for designers, developers, and deployment specialists in the CMT processor systems.
