  8. 8. TARGET APPLICATION  The Target System Information tool provides you with a wealth of system and process-state information for a specific target — live or post-mortem. Selecting a new target will update the Target System Information tool with a wide variety of information about what’s happening on that target device. You can begin with a high level overview, allowing you to see which processes are active and the process arguments involved. You can also view CPU and memory usage, both for the system at large and per process. You can then drill down, using tools that let you examine thread attributes (e.g. state, scheduling policy, CPU usage, stack size), signal states, program memory maps, file descriptors, and so on.
  9. 9. QNX OPERATING SYSTEM CLASSIFICATION  QNX is a real-time operating system (RTOS) intended to serve real- time application requests.  It must be able to process data as it comes in, typically without buffering delays. Processing time requirements (including any OS delay) are measured in tenths of seconds or shorter.  It performs application in real-time to give the users their needs.
  10. 10. QNX FEATURES  TRANSPARENT DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING. The QNX technology feature is Kernels on separate devices access each other's system services using effectively the same communication mechanism as is used to access local services.  MULTITASKING – the QNX Operating System can also perform different task at the same time.  FILE SYSTEM MANAGER – it have file management system that organize the files  PORTABLE – the QNX operating system is now used in smart phones.  IMPROVED GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE – the graphics is good and it is user friendly

  13. 13. QNX INSTALLATION PROCEDURE INSTALLING QNX ONTO A HARD DISK Before you proceed with the installation, be sure to read the installation instructions as well as the Release Notes that came with your software. The Release Notes contain important information that could influence the way you choose to install your software. You should also read the System Architecture manual, which explains the basic philosophy and operation of QNX. We assume you have this basic level of familiarity with the OS.
  14. 14. QNX INSTALLATION PROCEDURE SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS System requirements vary, depending on which products you wish to install. For example, to install the base OS on your development system, you'll need at least 14M free disk space. For more information, see the installation instructions that are shipped with each product. Your target system will likely require far less disk space (if it even has a disk!), RAM, etc. than your development system. Since QNX is a modular OS, you can easily configure your target system to use only the modules actually required at run time.
  15. 15. QNX INSTALLATION PROCEDURE (CONTINUED) DISTRIBUTION MEDIA QNX products may be shipped on either of these two media:  DISKETTE  CD-ROM In both cases, you'll use a QNX installation program to install QNX onto your hard disk. The program creates a directory structure, copies the software to your hard disk, and builds an OS boot image configured according to your input during the installation process.
  16. 16. QNX INSTALLATION PROCEDURE (CONTINUED) During the installation procedure, you may be prompted to confirm your hardware configuration. Make sure you have the correct information about your hardware before you begin:  hard disk size and partition(s)  hard disk controller type (IDE, Adaptec 2940 SCSI, etc.)  network card type and manufacturer (e.g. Ethernet Novell NE2000)
  17. 17. QNX INSTALLATION PROCEDURE (CONTINUED) CD-ROM DISTRIBUTION  If your QNX software was shipped on a CD, the installation procedure is quite simple: 1) Insert the QNX boot diskette into the floppy drive. 2) Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive. 3) Reboot your computer. 4) When your computer boots, simply follow the instructions on your screen.
  18. 18. QNX INSTALLATION PROCEDURE (CONTINUED) FLOPPY DISKETTE DISTRIBUTION  To install QNX from floppies, follow these steps: 1.) Place the QNX boot diskette into the floppy drive and reboot the computer. You should see a spinning arrow or a series of dots in the top left corner of your screen, followed by the QNX logo, a welcome message, and a shell prompt.  If you'd like information about the install options before you continue, type use install at the shell prompt.
  19. 19. QNX INSTALLATION PROCEDURE (CONTINUED) 2.) To transfer the software from the diskettes to your hard disk, type the following command at the shell prompt:  Simply follow the instructions on your screen to set up your hard disk so it will boot QNX. 3.) Reboot from hard disk. Once all the files have been installed from the floppy diskettes, you should remove any diskettes and reboot your computer from hard disk. QNX should now be up and running. At this point, you'll need to log in as root. install
  20. 20. QNX INSTALLATION PROCEDURE (CONTINUED) 4.) You're now ready to install additional software, customize your installation, set up your network, etc. SOURCE: http://www.qnx.com/developers/docs/qnx_4.25_docs/qnx4/user_g uide/install.html#HARDDISK
