READY???
1.
• Kernel is the one program running at all times
on the computer.
2.
• Interrupt transfers control to the interrupt
service routine generally, through the
interrupt line, which contains the addresses of
all the service routines
3.
• I/O and CPU can execute concurrently
4.
• Stored in ROM or EPROM also known as
firmware, Initializes all aspects of system,
loads OS kernel and starts execution.
5.
• Device controllers inform the memory that it
is finished w/ operation by causing an
interrupt.
6.
• Incoming interrupts are abled while another
interrupt is being processed.
7.
• The System call can made request to the
operating system to allow user to wait for I/O
completion.
8.
• Main memory is random access and volatile.
9.
• Caching is storing information into faster
storage system.
10.
• Multiprogramming provides efficiency via job
scheduling like when the OS has to wait, it
switches to another job.
11.
• Multiprocessor Systems can Increased
throughput, economy of scale, increased
reliability.
12.
• Timesharing is when the memory switches
jobs so frequently that each user can interact
with each job while it is running.
13.
• When Dual-mode operation occurs the OS will
allow the user to protect itself and other
system components.
14.
• Multi-threaded processes have one program
counter while single-threaded processes have
one program counter per thread.
15.
• Security is the mechanism for controlling
access of processes or users to resources
defined by the OS.
16.
• Protection is a defense of a system against
attacks.
17.
• There are 8 different types of storage in the
storage hierarchy.
18.
• The solid state disk is divided into tracks which
are subdivided into sectors.
19.
• Disk controller determines the logical
interaction between the device and the
computer.
20.
• OS indexes into the I/O device table to
determine device status and to modify the
table entry to include interrupt
