Ach... I used that msdn article as my reference before answering the question. However, nowhere does it mention "Software NUMA" but instead uses "Soft-NUMA" (which was not an answer option), especially when referring to SMP architecture.

Therefore this led me to believe "Software NUMA" was a trick, so I went for SMP as "Soft-NUMA" seemed to be originally designed to combat this architecture.

Ah well... at least I still learned something new Unsure

Woo! And I thought I would never need the NUMA knowledge obtained a few days ago.
Thanks Gail/Steve!

Thanks for the question - a subject area I had no idea about, until reading the linked MSDN article (after getting the answer wrong, of course!). Exactly what QotD should do for us.

Keep up the good work Steve

So which type of NUMA is used when dancing? I think I might need to ask my kids...

Nice simple question.

I guess about two thirds getting it right is reasonable, as it's something a lot of people will not have come across. But currently 16% have picked "SMP" which startled me - evidently they don't see that S (Symmetric) and NU (NonUniform) are orthogonal/independent, as are MP (MultiProcessing) and MA (Memory Access). Unless they just don't know what the acronyms stand for.
