1 monolithic system
1. Monolithic System

  • The earliest and most common OS architecture.

  • Every component of OS contained in the kernel and can directly communicate with any other (i.e by using function call).

  • The kernel typically executes with unrestricted access to the computer system (refer next diagram)

MM- Memory management

PS- Process scheduler

IPC- Interprocesscommunictaion

FS- File System

I/O- Input Output manager

Net- Network manager

2 layered system
2. Layered System

  • To overcome the issue of monolithic architecture by grouping components that performs similar functions into layers

  • Each layer communicates with those above and below it.

  • Lower-level layers provide services to higher-level layer using interfaces that hide their implementation

  • Layer OS are more modular than monolithic OS because the implementation of each layer can be modified without requiring any modification to other layers

2. Layered System

  • Each component hides how it performs its job and presents a standard interface that other components can use to request its services

  • In a layer approach, a user process’s request may need to pass through many layers before it is services

  • Early example of layer OS is THE (TechnischeHogeschool Eindhoven)

  • Many of today’s OS including Windows XP and Linux implement some level of layering.

  • Main advantage is simplicity of construction and debugging.

Layers of THE Operating System

  • The OS is divided into a number of layers (levels)

  • The bottom layer (layer 0), is the hardware.

  • The highest (layer N) is the user interface.

3 virtual machines os
3. VirtualMachines OS

  • Virtual Machine OS is to support concurrent execution of different operating system on a computer .

  • The resources of the physical computer are shared to create the virtual machines.

    • CPU scheduling can create the appearance that users have their own processor.

    • Spooling and a file system can provide virtual card readers and virtual line printers.

    • A normal user time-sharing terminal serves as the virtual machine operator’s console.

3 advantages disadvantages of virtual machine os
3. Advantages & Disadvantages of Virtual Machine OS

  • Advantages:

    • provides complete protection of system resources. Each virtual machine is isolated from all other virtual machines.

    • perfect vehicle for operating-systems RND.

    • System development is done on the virtual machine, instead of on a physical machine. So does not disrupt normal system operation.

  • Disadvantages:

    • This isolation permits no direct sharing of resources.

    • Difficult to implement due to the effort required to provide an exact duplicate to the underlying machine.

Network operating system nos
Network Operating System (NOS)

  • NOS is the system software of a local area network (LAN) that integrates the network's hardware components, usually adequate for connecting up to 50 workstations.

  • Included such features as a menu-driven administration interface, tape backup of file-server software, security restrictions, facilities for sharing printers, central storage of application programs and databases, remote log-in via modem, and support for discuss workstations.

  • A network operating system establishes and maintains the connection between the workstations and the file server; the physical connections alone aren't sufficient to support networking.

  • 2 type of NOS :

    • Peer to pear

    • Client Server

  • Example of NOS operating system

    • Microsoft Windows (Workgroups)

    • Microsoft Windows NT Server

Terminologies in OS : Cooperative Multitasking

  • A type of multitasking in which the process currently controlling the CPU must offer control to other processes. It is called cooperative because all programs must cooperate for it to work
