Table Explanation

  • Software: The name of the application that is described
  • SMP aware:
    • basic: hard split into multiple virtual host
    • basic+: hard split into multiple virtual host with some minimal/incomplete communication between virtual host on the same computer
    • dynamic: split the resource of the computer(CPU/Ram) on demand
