Advanced Multiple Processor Configuration Study. Final Report.
Clymer, S. J.
This summary of a study on multiple processor configurations includes the objectives, background, approach, and results of research undertaken to provide the Air Force with a generalized model of computer processor combinations for use in the evaluation of proposed flight training simulator computational designs. An analysis of a real-time flight simulator was performed which produced a set of design characteristics in terms of flight simulator configurations and multiple processor performance measures. A literature search, which was undertaken to support this analysis and to assess evaluation methods and instruments, identified a baseline set of techniques and tools which can be used to evaluate alternative candidate multiple processor designs with respect to a set of quantitative computational measures for a given application. Tables displaying input and output definitions for a functional performance simulator are appended. (MER)
