Abstract:

The extended, time-shared processor system is motivated and defined. The purpose of the discussion is to characterize and evaluate this concept. In the course of the discussion, current time-shared systems, their characteristics, some of their technical implications, and some of their problems are reviewed. The review yields implications as to the essential characteristics of the extended, time-shared processor system. The discussion ends with the conclusion that the extended, time-shared processor system is a limited instance of a more generalized set of adaptive, parallel processor systems which seek to automatically and dynamically distribute their load throughout the processor network.
