The primary goal for an operating system in a symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) implementation is to convert the additional computing power provided to the system, as processors are added, into improved system performance without compromising system quality. The DEC OSF/1 version 3.0 operating system uses a number of techniques to achieve this goal. The(More)
The cover design captures two major concepts in this issue-symmetry and pamllelism. At the hardware level, the AlphaServer multiprocess­ ing systems provide symmetrical access to hard­ ware system resources. As processors are added to the multiprocessing system, the DEC OSF/1 operating system provides the parallelism that allows applications to take(More)
