32 Operating System Model Operating System Model 33 As mentioned at the beginning of this chapter, one of the key design goals for Windows NT was that it had to run well on multiprocessor computer systems. Windows 2000 is also a symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) operating system. htm')"> Figure 2-1 Symmetric vs. asymmetric multiprocessing Although Windows NT was originally designed to support up to 32 processors, nothing inherent in the multiprocessor design limits the number of processors to 32—that number is simply an obvious and convenient limit because 32 processors can easily be represented as a bit mask using a native 32bit data type.

One set of kernel objects, called control objects, establishes semantics for controlling various operating system functions. This set includes the APC object, the deferred procedure call (DPC)object, and several objects the I/O manager uses, such as the interrupt object.

NOTE The next architecture to be supported by a future version of Windows 2000 is the new Intel Itanium processor family, the first implementation of the 64-bit architecture family being jointly developed by Intel and Hewlett-Packard, called IA-64 (for Intel Architecture 64). The 64-bit version of Windows will provide a much larger address space for both user processes and the system. Although this is a major enhancement that extends the scalability of the system significantly, to date, moving Windows 2000 to a 64-bit platform hasn't necessitated major changes in the kernel architecture of the system (other than the support in the memory manager, of course).
