      • Install LINUX in a dual-boot configuration
    • Advantages over Windows
      • Extremely stable
      • Internet support
      • Reinstallation is simpler
    • Disadvantage
      • Scarcity of applications
  • Network Operating System NOS
    • Designed to permit computers on a network to share resources
    • Examples
      • Windows 2000 Server
      • Novell Net Ware
    • Provides
      • Data security
      • Troubleshooting
      • Administrative control
  • NOS Functions
    • Split between client and server computers
    • Server
      • File management
    • Client
      • Requests to the server
      • Messaging
      • Has own local OS
    • Makes the resources appear as if they are local to the client’s computer
  • Large Computers
    • Used by many people at once
    • OS works “behind the scenes” so users can share
    • OS must control
      • Who gets access to resources
      • What keeps the programs from different users from getting mixed up with one another
  • Resource Allocation
    • Resource – hardware or software that is needed to complete a task
    • Resource Allocation – assigning computer resources to certain programs
    • Resource De-allocation – releasing resources when a task is complete
  • Allocating the CPU
    • One CPU
      • Multiprogramming
        • Event-driven
        • Timesharing
    • More than one CPU
      • Multiprocessing – multiple CPUs can run several programs simultaneously
  • Multiprogramming
    • One CPU
    • Concurrent execution of two or more processes
      • Several processes open at once
      • Only one process can receive the attention of the CPU at any given moment
      • Effective because CPU speeds are many times faster than input/output speeds
  • Event-driven Multiprogramming
    • One program receives the attention of the CPU
    • Its processing will be interrupted based upon events in the program
    • When processing needs to be temporarily suspended, an interrupt is generated
    • This is a signal to the operating system to evaluate the cause of the interrupt and determine who should now have CPU time
  • Event-driven Multiprogramming Example
    • Two programs are running – Payroll and Inventory Management
    • Payroll needs to read an employee record
    • Payroll generates an interrupt
    • Normal processing is temporarily suspended
    • The CPU looks at the interrupt and initiates the read operation
    • While waiting for the read to complete, the CPU begins processing the Inventory Management program
  • Event-driven Multiprogramming Example
    • When the read operation is complete, another interrupt is generated
    • Normal processing is temporarily suspended
    • The CPU looks at the interrupt and determines its cause
    • The CPU will either continue processing the Inventory Management program or return to the Payroll program depending upon their priority
  • Time-sharing Multiprogramming
    • One program receives the attention of the CPU
    • A small fraction of CPU time is allocated to the program
    • The time slice ends
    • The CPU begins processing a different program
    • Response time can vary based upon the number of users on the system
  • Sharing Memory
    • Program must be in memory to be executed
    • Problems
      • Programs compete for space
      • May have a very large program
      • Memory space for each program must not overlap
  • Memory Management
    • The process of providing separate memory space to programs
    • Memory Protection keeps one program from interfering with another
  • Memory Management Methods
    • Partitions or regions
    • Foreground and background
    • Virtual storage (virtual memory)
  • Partitions or Regions
    • Divide memory into sections
    • The partition must accommodate the largest possible program
    • Problem
      • May cause wasted memory space
  • Foreground and Background
    • Programs are placed in either Foreground or Background
    • Programs in Foreground have priority for CPU time
    • While performing read / write operations for the Foreground program, the CPU gives time to a program in Background
    • Programs are placed in a holding queue while waiting to run
  • Virtual Storage Virtual Memory
    • Uses concept of Paging
    • Divide the program into equal-size pieces (pages)
    • Store each piece in equal-size memory spaces (page frames)
    • Typical size is 2KB or 4KB
    • Create an index to each page and store in a Page Table
    • Paging Process
    • A portion of the program is placed in memory
    • The remainder is on disk
    • Sections on disk will be brought into memory as needed (one page at a time)
    Virtual Storage Virtual Memory
  • Virtual Storage Virtual Memory
    • Problem -- Thrashing
      • Too large a portion of CPU time is spent locating the correct page and bringing it into memory
    • Solution
      • Run fewer programs concurrently
      • Add memory
  • Memory Protection
    • Keeps one program from straying into another
    • Confines each program to certain defined limits in memory
    • Why needed
      • Possible for one program to destroy or modify another by transferring to the wrong memory location
      • May cause destruction of data
    • Action if assigned memory space is violated
      • Termination of executing program
  • Sharing Storage
    • Several users need to access the same disk pack
      • One wants to write
      • Another wants to read
    • OS keeps track of the I/O requests
    • OS processes I/O requests in order received
  • Sharing Printing Resources
    • Print resources are shared between active programs
    • Printouts are generated in pieces as the CPU gives each concurrent program some time
    • Problem
      • The current program may generate a few print lines
      • The CPU moves to the next program
      • The second program may generate a few print lines, etc.
  • Sharing Printing Resources
    • Result
      • Printout is worthless as it contains a few lines from several programs
    • Solution – Spooling
      • Each program thinks it is writing to the printer
      • The program actually writes to the hard disk
      • When the program is complete, the file on the hard disk is sent to the printer
  • Additional Printing Problem
    • Printers are slow compared to the CPU speed
    • Solution
      • The CPU writing to the disk
      • The program completes quicker
  • Utility Programs
    • Come with System Software
    • Handle special needs
    • Perform secondary chores
    • Do not need to be memory resident
  • Functions of Utility programs
    • File manager – provide access to lists of stored files
    • Backup and Restore – make duplicate copies of important files and return the copy to the hard drive if needed
    • File compression – reduces the amount of disk space required by a file
    • Disk defragmenter – reorganize files so they are stored contiguously on disk providing for faster access
    • Device drivers – convert operating system instructions into commands that are known to a specific device
