Some PC Server computers incorporate a 100MHz Pentium® processor and a
second upgradeability processor socket on the system board to support
Symmetric Multiprocessors/Multiprocessing (SMP). The SMP capability
extends processing performance by allowing tasks to be dispatched to the
next available processor rather then being queued until the busy processor
has completed its task.
The SMP capability also provides a level of high
availability in that with some operating systems, such as OS/2 SMP, run in
a uni-processor mode if one of the processors should experience a failure.
This function will allow the LAN to continue operation so that service can
be scheduled at a non-critical time.
