Functionalities of AMPs

Can any one tell me, whether the user need to add and configure the AMPs manually ? If so, How ? How clustering of AMPs can provide fault tolerance?How AMPs are related to File management and Disk Space management?Regards,T.Ashok Kumar.

Hi NO as user does not configure the AMPs, this is done by NCR at installation and setup of the TeraData box.An AMP is physical space, memory and CPU, whcih are the "worker bees" (Thanks Tom Coffing) of the system. Remember the data is spread accross all AMPs by the PRIMARY index using a HASHING algorythm.Trust this helps....
