Abstract:

A multiprocessor system is defined which is expected to have flexibility and efficiency advantages over conventional systems in a time-sharing environment. The key to the system is the presence of an Associative Memory Subsystem. The associative memories are used to provide dynamic control over processor assignments, to mechanize an automatic page turning scheme, and to provide improtant functions concerned with the execution of IO commands. One of the significant features of the system is its capability of doing parallel processing, which allows a high-priority job to obtain a larger portion of the computing power of the system than would otherwise be possible.
