A major problem in distributing computer power over a number of processors is to control the flow of the processes in the system by scheduling the processes on the correct processors and providing the interprocess communication needed. An alternative to implementing control functions in software is to micro-program them in the hardware. This alternative(More)
This paper is tutorial in nature in that it applies known techniques to control the execution of processes in a multiprocessor multiprogram environment. Aspects of the software and hardware needs in a multiprocessor system are discussed. An example hardware system of the less expensive mini or micro processors is used to help illustrate the control software(More)
