Introduction to Fork Call

Introduction to Fork Call

Introduction The fork system call is specially used to make a new process that is known as a child process that runs simultaneously with the process that invokes the fork() call. Once a new child process is initiated both processes will run the next instruction after the fork() system call.

Understanding Banker's Algorithm in Operating System

Introduction The banker’s algorithm in the operating system is especially used to avoid deadlock and resource allocation problems that basically use the predefined simulation for all the resources. Why this algorithm is named Banker’s algorithm? This algorithm is internally used in the banking system to check whether a

How does CPU Scheduling work?

How does CPU Scheduling work?

Introduction By allowing one process to use the CPU while another's execution is put on hold (or in a waiting state) due to the lack of a resource like I/O or another, CPU scheduling maximizes the CPU usage. CPU scheduling seeks to improve the system's effectiveness, speed, and fairness.

Introduction to Deadlock in Operating System

Introduction Numerous processes—programs now being run—are constantly active in an operating system. The computer's operation depends on each of these processes. It outlines the fundamental task that the system must carry out. Processes execute sequentially. Some resources are needed for these procedures to operate or complete their execution.
