A bulk arrival Mx/M/c queuing system is used to model a centralized parallel processing system with job splitting. In such a system, jobs wait in a central queue, which is accessible by all the processors, and are split into independent tasks that can be executed on separate processors. The job response-time consists of three components: queuing delay, service time, and synchronization delay. An expression for the mean job response-time is obtained for this centralized parallel-processing system. Centralized and distributed parallel-processing systems (with and without job-splitting) are considered and their performances compared. Furthermore, the effects of parallelism and overheads due to job-splitting are investigated.
