Running Amygdala on multiple CPUs
The basic idea of Amygdala MP is to partition a network into sub networks and let them
run independently, yet synchronized.
Currently, only SMP is supported through multi-threading. This includes machines with
the new chips with 2 or more CPUs such as the POWER4 from IBM or the Pentium 4 with
hyperthreading. Don't expect much from the first Pentium4 with hyper threading.
show that these features are not quite mature yet. Classical SMP systems or POWER4
architectures will exhibit a considerable performance boost, though.
The upcoming versions of Amygdala will provide tools to facilitate network partitioning.
Running a network on a cluster of workstations will also be possible.
