Types of computer system based on General purpose processor -
- Single Processor System
- MultiProcessor System
- Clustered System
- one main CPU capable of executing a general purpose instrution set including the instruction from the user.
- other special purpose processor are also present which performs device specific task. here we have only a general processor to perform a specific task that's why we call it
Also know as pallel System or tightly coupled system.
they have two or more processor in close commucation sharing the computer bus and sometimes the clock and memory and peripheral devices.
In mutli processor system we will have increased throughput (performance)
Economy of scale. (more economic then single processor system)
It has increased Reliability (if a processor fails we still have other processor to do work)
types of mutli processing systems
Symmetic Multiprocessing System here we have different processor , but they are actually the same (same brand model ) and they all participate in performing the task.
Asymmetic Multiprocessing System here we have a main master cpu which controls the other slave cpu.
here many individual system come together to perform a task
- it provide high avaiblity.
- they can be structured symmectrically or Asymmectrically.
