"Connected" is not quite the right word. The AMPs are virtual processors (vprocs) that run on the node; each AMP spawns several processes (AMP
Worker Tasks). The number of AMPs (and PE's) on each node is decided by Teradata Engineering on the basis of extensive workload tests. It is not
something that an ordinary mortal would decide for his own Teradata installation.
