Deadlock Detection and Recovery in Linux Book Review:

A deadlock occurs when there is a cyclic dependency between two or more threads, or processes, for some set of resources within operating system environment. A set of processes is deadlocked if each process is waiting for an event that only another process in the set can cause. My thesis aims at creating a tool, which can be used by an application developer for detecting the occurrence of a deadlock. It also helps the developer in analyzing the cause of deadlock, since the project provides him with information, such as the deadlocked processes and the resources causing it. The developer can also view the log file, which is generated by this tool to study the sequence of events, such as locking or unlocking of the resources. The outline of the project is as follows: A wrapper function dd_semop has been developed around the system call semop. An application program has to include a header file "libdeadlock.h" in order to use this wrapper functionality. A daemon process has also been developed dl_mgmt, which carries out the major functionality for deadlock detection and recovery. The wrapper function communicates with the daemon process, which runs in the background and actually verifies whether a lock can be granted or not and communicates back the possibility of a deadlock. Once the tool provides the output and depending on the users feedback to it, the tool provides a mechanism to continue execution without deadlock. Thus, this research project provides a comprehensible tool to study and manage deadlocks in a Linux flavor known as Fedora. Deadlock is thus a potential problem. Timely detection of deadlock and its cause are essential for resolving the error and maintaining forward progress.

Operating Systems Book Review:

For a one-semester undergraduate course in operating systems for computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering majors. Winner of the 2009 Textbook Excellence Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association (TAA)! Operating Systems: Internals and Design Principles is a comprehensive and unified introduction to operating systems. By using several innovative tools, Stallings makes it possible to understand critical core concepts that can be fundamentally challenging. The new edition includes the implementation of web based animations to aid visual learners. At key points in the book, students are directed to view an animation and then are provided with assignments to alter the animation input and analyze the results. The concepts are then enhanced and supported by end-of-chapter case studies of UNIX, Linux and Windows Vista. These provide students with a solid understanding of the key mechanisms of modern operating systems and the types of design tradeoffs and decisions involved in OS design. Because they are embedded into the text as end of chapter material, students are able to apply them right at the point of discussion. This approach is equally useful as a basic reference and as an up-to-date survey of the state of the art.

Understanding the Linux Kernel Book Review:

To thoroughly understand what makes Linux tick and why it's so efficient, you need to delve deep into the heart of the operating system--into the Linux kernel itself. The kernel is Linux--in the case of the Linux operating system, it's the only bit of software to which the term "Linux" applies. The kernel handles all the requests or completed I/O operations and determines which programs will share its processing time, and in what order. Responsible for the sophisticated memory management of the whole system, the Linux kernel is the force behind the legendary Linux efficiency. The new edition of Understanding the Linux Kernel takes you on a guided tour through the most significant data structures, many algorithms, and programming tricks used in the kernel. Probing beyond the superficial features, the authors offer valuable insights to people who want to know how things really work inside their machine. Relevant segments of code are dissected and discussed line by line. The book covers more than just the functioning of the code, it explains the theoretical underpinnings for why Linux does things the way it does. The new edition of the book has been updated to cover version 2.4 of the kernel, which is quite different from version 2.2: the virtual memory system is entirely new, support for multiprocessor systems is improved, and whole new classes of hardware devices have been added. The authors explore each new feature in detail. Other topics in the book include: Memory management including file buffering, process swapping, and Direct memory Access (DMA) The Virtual Filesystem and the Second Extended Filesystem Process creation and scheduling Signals, interrupts, and the essential interfaces to device drivers Timing Synchronization in the kernel Interprocess Communication (IPC) Program execution Understanding the Linux Kernel, Second Edition will acquaint you with all the inner workings of Linux, but is more than just an academic exercise. You'll learn what conditions bring out Linux's best performance, and you'll see how it meets the challenge of providing good system response during process scheduling, file access, and memory management in a wide variety of environments. If knowledge is power, then this book will help you make the most of your Linux system.

Operating System Concepts Book Review:

This new seventh edition of the book has been brought up to date to include recent developments in operating systems such as Windows XP and the new small footprint operating systems that work in hand held devices such as the Palm and in cell phones. Most of the book is on general purpose operating systems such as Linux and those from Microsoft. But at the end of the book there are chapters on other types of operating such as Real Time Operating Systems and MultiMedia OS's. Finally there are some chapters which the authors call case studies. In these, one chapter goes into a detailed discussion of Linux, another chapter covers Windows XP. Chapter 23 covers several early operating systems that helped to define the features that make up modern os's. These include: Atlas, XDX-940, THE, RC 4000, CTSS, MULTICS, OS/360, and MACH, along with brief mentions of several others. Note that this not a book on how to use operating systems, this is a book on how operating systems are designed. It is intended for upper level undergraduate students or first year graduate students.
