The use of multiple processors so that a computer system, workstation, or network server can execute more than one instruction, or process more than one program, at the same time.
Simultaneous application of more than one processor in a multi-CPU computer system to the execution of a single user job, which is possible only if the job can be effectively defined in terms of a number of independently executable components.
simultaneous processing by two or more processing units
The capability of an operating system to use multiple processors simultaneously in a single computer, usually to process multiple jobs at one time faster than could be performed with a single processor.
Simultaneous execution of instructions by multiple processors within a single computer.
Two or more CPU's in the same microcomputer. It allows for faster operation and the ability to handle more complex tasks.
The ability of a system that contains more than one processor to simultaneously execute separate processes on each.
Refers to a computer system's ability to support more than one process (program) at the same time. Multiprocessing operating systems enable several programs to run concurrently.
The use of more than one processor in a single computer system.
The ability of a computer to intermix jobs on one or more CPUs.
using more than one CPU at the same time
The simultaneous use by a computer of two or more central processing units, with each executing its own instruction set and each controlled by a single operating system.
Operating system that can support two or more CPUs running programs at the same time. 8.9
Multiprocessing is a generic term for the use of two or more central processing units (CPUs) within a single computer system. It also refers to the ability of a system to support more than one processor and/or the ability to allocate tasks between them.Chip http://www.computerworld.com/hardwaretopics/hardware/desktops/story/0,10801,54343,00.html multiprocessing There are many variations on this basic theme, and the definition of multiprocessing can vary with context, mostly as a function of how CPUs are defined (multiple cores on one die, multiple chips in one package, multiple packages in one system unit, etc.).
