Supervisor:
Department of Computer Systems
Synopsis:

Students understand the classical theory of operating systems (OS) in addition to the knowledge gained in the BI-UOS module. They get a solid knowledge of OS kernels, processes and threads implementations. They understand the problems of race conditions and principles and algorithms for critical sections, thread scheduling, resource allocation, deadlocks. They understand the techniques of the management of virtual memory, principles and architectures of disks and disk arrays, file systems, and peripheral devices. They gain basic knowledge necessary for developing system applications or for system administration. 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. Processes and threads, management and implementation.

2. Race conditions. Critical section. Synchronization primitives. Classical interprocess communication problems and their solutions.

3. Thread scheduling. Resource allocation. Deadlock.

4. Memory management - basic methods. Virtual memory. Paging. Segmentation.

5. Page replacement algorithms. Physical disks and RAID.

6. File systems ? properties. File systems ? implementation, examples (fat, ntfs, ufs, zfs).

7. I/O, peripheral devices. Communication of the OS with a peripheral device.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Introduction. Project assignment. System calls. Threads. Thread synchronization. [2] Consultation. Presentation of the first project (threads). Processes. Process synchronization. [2] Consultation. Presentation of the second project (processes). Assessment.

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.
