You can associate PEs defined in a Teradata Database configuration with one or more host computers or local area networks that also are defined in the configuration.

Typically, AMPs in a configuration are related to other AMPs through cluster assignments.

The placement of AMPs and PEs in a configuration is critical to the overall performance of the Teradata Database.
