Sample text

A process in a multi-threaded system is the changeable entity and must be considered as an execution frame. It has all traditional process attributes, such as process ID, process group ID, user ID, group ID, environment, and working directory. A process also provides a common address space and common system resources for: • File descriptors 24 AIX 5L and Windows 2000: Side by Side • Signal actions • Shared libraries • Inter-process communication tools, such as message queues, pipes, semaphores, or shared memory A thread is the schedulable entity.

Most other users on the system are considered regular users and are usually not able to modify system-related files. 28 AIX 5L and Windows 2000: Side by Side Access to files and directories is controlled via file permissions. Files and directories are owned by a user. A user is also a member of a group or several groups. Groups are a collection of users that can be granted permissions easily. The owner of a directory or file can specify who may read, execute, and write to them. This is standard UNIX behavior.

An example of pinned kernel code is the interrupt processing section of the device drivers. Chapter 2. Operating system architecture 17 The kernel utilizes a pager daemon to keep a pool of physical pages free. It uses a Least Recently Used (LRU) algorithm. If the number of pages available goes below a high-watermark threshold, the pager frees the oldest LRU pages until a low-watermark threshold is reached. In other operating systems, including some UNIX variants, the entire kernel must be loaded and pinned into memory.
