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.
Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:If
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.
5. Use at least four (4) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
