Diagrams Showing how Multics is able to dynamically reconfigure

Processor A and B connected to all memory elements
System Functioning Normally
Processor B not connected to any memory elements
Processor B off-line for maintenance:
Processor A and Processor B assigned to dedicated memory for each processor
Multics running as two systems, Processor A running the normal system and Processor B running the development system:
