It is known that in multiprocessing systems composed of many identical processing units operating in parallel, certain timing anomalies may occur; e.g., an increase in the number of processing units can cause an increase in the total length of time needed to process a fixed set of tasks. In this paper, precise bounds are derived for several anomalies of this type.
