"There is another type of parallel processing that involves using multiple
computers over a network.  This is known as cluster computing or distributed
computing.  Such methods require problems that admit large-grain
parallelization.  Although such methods can be of interest in the
computation of statistical results, Stata/MP does not address such parallel
architectures."  Page 4, "Stata/MP Performance Report"
