Multiprocessor Operating System

Q1. Write in short about Multiprocessor Operating System.

Ans. An increasingly common way to get major-league computing power is to connect multiple CPUs into a single system. Depending on precisely how they are connected and what is shared, these systems are called parallel computers, multicomputer, or multiprocessor. They need special operating systems, but often these are variations on the server operating systems, with special features for communication, connectivity, and consistency.

Many popular operating systems, including Windows and Linux, run on multiprocessor.
