Multi-process database server machine
A multi-process database server machine is a node that runs multiple server processes for each database, providing multiple data paths to the database. Each server queues and runs requests for one or more clients. A separate broker process starts a new server for each additional client (or set of clients, in specified increments) that access the database. For more information on server machine configurations, see Shared-memory configurations.
You can dedicate all the resources of a database server machine to run database servers. However, depending on your application and operating system, you can also run local clients and remote clients for other database server machines.
