Maximum number of AMPS possible in Teradata version 12 and above ???

Maximum number of AMPS possible in Teradata version 12 and above ???

Hi All,

Maximum number of nodes supported by BYNET is 512 and room for expansion upto 2048 and maximum number of vprocs supported by each node is 128. so say for an example at max 65536 AMP is possible (512*128) but why maximum number supported is only 16384 vprocs per system ???

Please help to clarify my doubt.

Thanks
Sakthi

Hi Sakthi,
in fact the maximum number of AMPs is even much less than 16k, because PEs and Gateways are also VProcs.

AFAIK the largest systems currently got about 3000 AMPs, so there's still some time before that limit is reached.
And hopefully the limit is increased before it's hit :-)

Hi Dieter,

Thanks for posting reply. So an SMP Teradata system can have maximum of 128 AMPs only? What is this number in Teradata 15 and on what basis number of AMPs will be configured?

Thanks in advance.
