This paper describes the architecture and the performance analysis of a multiprocessor system, which is based on the shared memory and single system bus. The system bus provides the pended protocol for the multiprocessor environment. Analyzing the processor utilization, address/data bus utilization and memory conflicts, we use a simulation model. The hit ratio of private cache memory is a major factor on the linear increase of the performance of a shared memory based multiprocessor system.
