English term or phrase: multithreading
Definition from www.NetworkDictionary.com:
Multithreading typically refers to sharing a single CPU between multiple tasks (or "threads") in a way designed to minimise the time required to switch threads. This is accomplished by sharing as much as possible of the program execution environment between the different threads so that very little state needs to be saved and restored when changing thread. Multiple threads can be executed in parallel on many computer systems. This multithreading generally occurs by time slicing, wherein a single processor switches between different threads--in which case the processing is not literally "simultaneous", for the single processor is only really doing one thing at a time. On a multiprocessor system, threading can be achieved via multiprocessing, wherein different threads can run simultaneously on different processors.

Example sentence(s):
  • The design of the Java language makes multithreading essential for all but the simplest applets. In particular, IO and GUI programming both require multithreading to provide a seamless experience for the user. IBM
  • On a multi-processor computer, multithreading is implemented with a mixture of time-slicing and genuine concurrency – where different threads run code simultaneously on different CPUs. O'Reilly Media
  • Multithreading requires careful programming. For most tasks, you can reduce complexity by queuing requests for execution by thread pool threads. Microsoft Corporation

monisäikeisyys
Definition:
Monisäikeisyys tarkoittaa prosessia, jossa useita säikeitä toimii yhtäaikaa samassa muistiavaruudessa isäntäprosessin ja muiden säikeiden (= toiminto) kanssa. Monisäikeisyys on hienostuneempi versio moniajosta.

Definition from Nokia matkapuhelimet insinööritesti:
Monisäikeisyys tarkoittaa prosessia, jossa useita säikeitä toimii yhtäaikaa samassa muistiavaruudessa isäntäprosessin ja muiden säikeiden (= toiminto) kanssa. Monisäikeisyys on hienostuneempi versio moniajosta.

Example sentence(s):
  • Monisäikeisyys on perustekniikka jolla ohjelmat saadaan toimimaan tehokkaasti moniydinympäristössä. Monisäikeisissä järjestelmissä tarvitaan väistämättä jossain vaiheessa säikeiden välistä synkronointia. - Linkkipankki  
  • Monisäikeisyys Tekniikka, jossa prosessori suorittaa useaa eri tehtävää samanaikaisesti (engl. multithreading). - TAMPEREEN AMMATTIKORKEAKOULU  
  • Joustavuuteen vaikuttaa mm. – Monisäikeisyys: järjestelmä sallii käyttäjän työskennellä monen tehtävän parissa samanaikaisesti - TAUCHI
