Department of Computer Systems
Synopsis:

Students understand the classical theory of operating systems (OS) in addition to the knowledge gained in the module „Programming in Shell 1“. They get a solid knowledge of OS kernels, processes and threads implementations. They understand the problems of race conditions, thread scheduling, resource allocation and deadlocks, the techniques of the management of virtual memory, principles and architectures of disks, RAID and file systems. They are able to design and implement simple multithreaded applications.

Requirements:

Common user-level knowledge of operating systems. Basic knowledge of C/C++ programming.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction. OS architecture and functions. OS kernel.

2. Processes and threads, management and implementation.

3. Race conditions. Critical section. Synchronization primitives.

4. Classical interprocess communication problems and their solutions.

5. Thread scheduling.

6. Resource allocation. Deadlock.

7. Memory management - basic methods.

8. Virtual memory. Paging. Segmentation.

9. Page replacement algorithms.

10. Physical disks and RAID.

11. File systems - properties.

12. File systems - implementation, examples (fat, ntfs, ufs, zfs).

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Programs with multiple threads.

2. Thread synchronisation I. (mutex, condition variables).

3. Thread synchronisation II. (semaphores, barriers).

4. Processes (fork(), exec(),...).

5. Deadlock, physical and virtual memory.

6. Page replacement algorithms.

Study Objective:

Students gain basic knowledge necessary for developing system applications or for system administration. After completing the course, students will be able to design and implement simple multithreaded applications.
