The computational performance of multiprocessors continues to improve b y leaps and bounds, fueled in part by rapid improvements in processor and interconnection technology. I/O performance thus becomes ever more critical, to avoid becoming the bottleneck of system performance. In this paper we p r o vide an introduction to I/O architectural issues in multiprocessors, with a focus on disk subsystems. While we discuss examples from actual architectures and provide pointers to interestingdoi:10.1007/978-1-4613-1401-1_4 fatcat:zdvyvbg7xrdr3jzuhis5a6vrjy
