Amps and Vprocs

Amps and Vprocs

Can someone explain exactly what an AMP and a VPROC are?

Is an AMP hardware or software (is an AMP a disk)?

VPROC stands for virtual processor.  Correct?  So it is a software version of a processor?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Amps and Vprocs

AMPs are a type of VPROC, the other being a PE (parsing engine).  VPROCs, AMPs and PEs are all virtual, created by software.  PE do the query parsing and session control, AMP perform the query steps.

RE: Amps and Vprocs

yep, actually amp is a unix process
