Abstract:

This report consists of two papers that treat reliability of the multiprocessor systems at CMU. The first paper discusses the multiprocessor architectures, reliability features hardware and software, and measured reliability data. The second paper presents hard failure data from one of the systems, calibrates a hard failure rate model, and analytically models the reliability of the three systems.
