Genre: Operating systems

Over the past two decades, there has been a huge amount of innovation in both the principles and practice of operating systems Over the same period, the core ideas in a modern operating system - protection, concurrency, virtualization, resource allocation, and reliable storage - have become widely applied throughout computer science. Whether you get a job at Facebook, Google, Microsoft, or any other leading-edge technology company, it is impossible to build resilient, secure, and flexible computer systems without the ability to apply operating systems concepts in a variety of settings. This book examines the both the principles and practice of modern operating systems, taking important, high-level concepts all the way down to the level of working code. Because operating systems concepts are among the most difficult in computer science, this top to bottom approach is the only way to really understand and master this important material.

Operating systems

Author: Gary J. Nutt
Publisher: Addison Wesley Publishing Company
ISBN: UVA:X004554911
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Computers

This updated edition of Operating Systems, 2e brings this edition up-to-date in regards to the latest operating systems. It features material on the latest version of Windows 2000 and Linux, and also provides updated lab exercises for readers looking for more hands-on Windows work. Gary Nutt provides an understanding of contemporary operating system practice through a complete discussion of operating system principles, supplemented with code, algorithms, implementation issues, and lab exercises. The bookOs flexible arrangement, which separates principles from practice, allows professors to choose the appropriate breadth and depth of each topic presentation. Operating Systems enhances the focus on principles and practice with the Windows 2000 examples, a design that facilitates reading of the text and designates examples as Linux/UNIX or Windows, and a Lab Exercises feature which allows readers to work extended hands-on problems. Operating Systems also covers modern topics such as threads, concurrency, and distributed systems. It addresses both quantitative and qualitative theory, but is not overly mathematically sophisticated.

Genre: Computers

Der Autor präsentiert die Grundlagen und Konzepte der heutigen Betriebssysteme und behandelt die Gebiete Prozesse (Prozesszustände, Prozessscheduling, Prozesssynchronisation und Prozesskommunikation), Speicherverwaltung (virtueller Speicher, paging, swapping), Dateiverwaltung (Files, Ordner, Sicherheitsmechanismen), Ein-und Ausgabeverwaltung (Treiber, I/O-memory mapping, Systemfunktionen) sowie Netzwerke (Netzwerkschichten, Arbeitsverteilung, Schattenserver) und Sicherheitsmechanismen (Angriffsarten, root kits, Kerberos). Dabei werden sowohl Einprozessor- als auch Mehrprozessorsysteme betrachtet und die Konzepte an wichtigen existierenden Betriebssystemen wie Unix und Windows NT verdeutlicht. In der vorliegenden vierten Auflage wurden viele Erfahrungen aus der Lehrpraxis berücksichtigt. So wurden nicht nur die Entwicklungen in Windows NT und Unix, speziell Linux, aktualisiert, sondern auch einige Kapitel neu gegliedert und um das Thema „Sicherheit“ ergänzt. Weitere Aufgaben und Beispiele mit Musterlösungen runden das Werk ab. Alle Vorlesungsfolien, die Vorlesungsvideos sowie eine umfangreiche Klausursammlung mit Musterlösungen stehen auf den Webseiten des Autors zum Herunterladen bereit.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

Despite its importance, the role of HdS is most often underestimated and the topic is not well represented in literature and education. To address this, Hardware-dependent Software brings together experts from different HdS areas. By providing a comprehensive overview of general HdS principles, tools, and applications, this book provides adequate insight into the current technology and upcoming developments in the domain of HdS. The reader will find an interesting text book with self-contained introductions to the principles of Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS), the emerging BIOS successor UEFI, and the Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). Other chapters cover industrial applications, verification, and tool environments. Tool introductions cover the application of tools in the ASIP software tool chain (i.e. Tensilica) and the generation of drivers and OS components from C-based languages. Applications focus on telecommunication and automotive systems.

The section on Concepts covers fundamental principles, such as file systems, process management, memory management, input-output, resource sharing, Inter-process Communication (IPC), distributed computing, OS security, real-time and micro-kernel design. This new edition also comes with a revised section on Practice to make the book compatible with Linux. The entire section is thoroughly revised to enable the students and readers learn the examples based on popular Linux distribution, such as Ubuntu. The coverage of Linux, Windows Vista, VxWorks and OS for mobile/handheld devices, such as Android, continues the tradition of upgrading the book to contemporary OS. The chapter on OS Security is also revised in this edition to reflect the importance of secured engineering practices in OS usage patterns. This book is intended to the students of Computer Science/Engineering, Computer Applications and Information Technology. As the knowledge of Operating Systems is essential for the IT practitioners as well, this book caters to the needs of those who might not have had a formal Computer Science/Engineering education or training for updating their knowledge on contemporary OS design.

Persistent Object Systems

Author: Richard Connor
Publisher: Morgan Kaufmann
ISBN: 1558604472
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Computers

Persistent systems concentrate on the removal of one of the perceived barriers to such advances, namely the requirement for programmers to treat data as conceptually different entities according to their expected lifetime. The goal of this work is therefore to provide supporting technology for a programming language and environment that eliminates the conventional inconsistencies between transient and persistent memory. The result is a broad presentation of significant issues in system performance, program correctness, data integrity, appropriate transaction models, integrating heterogeneous systems, and the technical challenges of implementing these systems.
