A hierarchical model of computer organizations is developed, based on a tree model using request/service type resources as nodes. Two aspects of the model are distinguished: logical and physical. General parallel- or multiple-stream organizations are examined as to type and effectiveness-especially regarding intrinsic logical difficulties. The overlapped simplex processor (SISD) is limited by data dependencies. Branching has a particularly degenerative effect. The parallel processors [single… Expand

Analysis of a Shared Resource MIMD Computer Organization
TLDR
In this paper, a MIMD structure with one shared resource is analyzed for both synchronous and asynchronous request arrivals and it appears that a similar approach can be used to extend the model to more general M IMD cases. Expand
Operating System Structure
The paper considers characteristics of the resource structure found 1n the operating system as a mechanism for classifying distributed computer systems. Since the operating system resources,Expand
A Comparative Study of Some Two-Processor Organizations
TLDR
A comparative performance study of four models of two-processor organizations is presented, with the aim being to compare their response times under different workloads and the possibility of switching between alternate organizations in a dynamically reconfigurable system. Expand
Performance evaluation of some computer organisations
TLDR
A simplified model has been analysed for both synchronous and asynchronous request arrivals and results indicate the possibility of selecting an optimum amount of resource replication so that the cost utilisation is optimised. Expand
A new taxonomy for distributed computer systems based upon operating system structure
TLDR
Characteristics of the resource structure found in the operating system are considered as a mechanism for classifying distributed computer systems and the character of the kernel O/S structure needed for future computer systems is defined. Expand
Parallel processing with the loosely coupled array of processors system
TLDR
This chapter focuses on parallel processing with the loosely coupled array of processors system, which is a multiple instruction stream/multiple data stream (MIMD) system, in the form of a distributed network of nodes. Expand

Minimization of supervisor conflict for multiprocessor computer systems
TLDR
A methodology is developed through simulation which reduces supervisor queueing by scheduling jobs to processors such that they request the use of the supervisor when the supervisor is predicted to be available. Expand
DISC: dynamic instruction stream computer
TLDR
The Dynamic Instruction Stream Computer is a novel computer architecture which addresses many of the problems present in real-time systems by dynamically partitioning the processor throughput between multiple instruction streams based upon requirement demands. Expand

TLDR
The high speed computer area seems to be dominated by a continued reduction in the price of computer switching circuits and the approach of these circuits to speeds at which the velocity of light becomes an important factor, so simultaneousity becomes more and more essential if computer performance is to continue to increase.
