Operating System for Parallel Computing: Issues and Problems


Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Computer Science - Theory, grade: A+, , language: English, abstract: Parallel computing attempts to solve many complex problems by using multiple computing resources simultaneously. This review paper is intended to address some of the major operating systems' design issues for shared memory parallel computers like SMPs. Parallel computers can be classified according to the level at which the architecture supports parallelism, with multi-core and multi-processor computers The paper proceeds by specifying key design issues of operating system: like processes synchronization, memory management, communication, concurrency control, and scheduling in case of shared memory SMPs. It also elaborates some concerns of Linux scheduler, for shared memory SMPs parallel computing. The basic objective of the paper is to provide a quick overview of problems that may arise in designing parallel computing operating system.
