What is Multiprogramming Operating System

The Crazy Programmer

In the present computer, many parallel application processes are required to execute to run the system. This is now the function of the OS to control & control all the processes efficiently and effectively which is conversely the paramount function of the operating system.

Context Switching in Operating System

This is because Context Switching in operating system helps store the context of a process, thread, or state, which can be accessed at the same point when reloaded. Context Switching in Operating System. When switching between multiple tasks takes place, a system does the following: .

Humility in AI: Building Trustworthy and Ethical AI Systems

AI is becoming ubiquitous. More and more critical decisions are automated through machine learning models, determining the future of a business or making life-altering decisions for real people. The number of critical touch points is growing exponentially with the adoption of AI. In this ebook, we explore the concept of humility in AI systems and how it can be applied to existing solutions to ensure their trustworthiness, ethicality, and reliability in a fast-changing world.

Distributed Systems Pattern: Lease

Martin Fowler

Cluster nodes need exclusive access to certain resources. But nodes can crash; they can be temporarily disconnected or experiencing a process pause. Under these error scenarios, they should not keep the access to a resource indefinitely. more…. skip-home-page

Distributed Systems Pattern: State Watch

Martin Fowler

Clients are interested in changes to the specific values on the server. It's difficult for clients to structure their logic if they need to poll the server continuously to look for changes. If clients open too many connections to the server for watching changes, it can overwhelm the server. more….

Distributed Systems Pattern: Consistent Core

Martin Fowler

Unmesh has a few more of his Patterns of Distributed Systems ready to share with the world. In this one he looks at the problem of a large cluster, one that is too large to effectively maintain strong consistency, yet needs to maintain some data in a strongly consistent way.

System 186

Distributed Systems Pattern: Segmented Log

Martin Fowler

A single log file can grow and become a performance bottleneck while its read at the startup. Older logs are cleaned up periodically and doing cleanup operations on a single huge file is difficult to implement. A Segmented Log splits the logfile into smaller files.

System 255

Distributed Systems Pattern: Idempotent Receiver

Martin Fowler

Clients send requests to servers but might not get a response. It's impossible for clients to know if the response was lost or the server crashed before processing the request. To make sure that the request is processed, the client has to re-send the request.

Distributed Systems Pattern: Request Pipeline

Martin Fowler

Communicating between servers within a cluster using Single Socket Channel can cause performance issues if requests need to wait for responses for previous requests to be returned.

Distributed Systems Pattern: Write-Ahead Log

Martin Fowler

In the latest part of his collection of Patterns of Distributed Systems, Unmesh faces the problem of a server failing in the middle of a complex update.

Distributed Systems Pattern: Leader and Followers

Martin Fowler

In a distributed system, it's often best to not make all the nodes equal. Unmesh shows how a leader can simplify coordination across a cluster, and how choosing that leader is often tricky.

System 228

Distributed Systems Pattern: Singular Update Queue

Martin Fowler

But if the tasks being performed are time consuming, like writing to a file, blocking all the other calling threads until the task is completed can have severe impact on overall system throughput and latency.

What is the Function of the Kernel of an Operating System?

Operating System (OS) is a platform that allows a user to interact with the computer hardware. A kernel is a structure over which an operating system handles all the fundamental processes and resources which are required during the boot sequence. Operating System

Distributed Systems Pattern: High-Water Mark

Martin Fowler

Unmesh adds High-Water Mark to his collection of patterns. The high-water mark is an index into the log file that records the last log entry that is known to have successfully replicated to a Quorum of followers. The leader also passes on the high-water mark to its followers during its replication. All servers in the cluster should only transmit data to clients that reflects updates that are below the high-water mark. more…. skip-home-page

Thrashing in Operating System (OS)

The Crazy Programmer

When a program need space larger than RAM or it need space when RAM is full, Operating System will try to allocate space from secondary memory and behaves like it has that much amount of memory by serving to that program. Whenever a page fault happens, operating system will try to fetch that page from secondary memory and try to swap it with one of the page in RAM.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

Types of Operating System

The Crazy Programmer

An operating system is the basic mechanism behind the working of the computer systems and mobile devices and so, understanding the operating system becomes very important from a user’s perspective. The various types of Operating systems are as follows: Types of Operating System. Batch Operating System. Since, it works by grouping multiple jobs into lesser number of batches, managing a large amount of work becomes easy in a batch operating system.

Building Evolvable Architectures

Speaker: Dr. Rebecca Parsons, CTO of ThoughtWorks

The software development ecosystem exists in a state of dynamic equilibrium, where any new tool, framework, or technique leads to disruption and the establishment of a new equilibrium. Predictability is impossible when the foundation architects plan against is constantly changing in unexpected ways. It’s no surprise many CIOs and CTOs are struggling to adapt, in part because their architecture isn’t equipped to evolve. This webinar will discuss what’s at stake if companies continue to use long term architecture plans.

Schema Evolution Patterns

Speaker: Alex Rasmussen, CEO, Bits on Disk

If you want to make your development team squirm, ask them about database schema changes or API versioning. Most development teams struggle with changing database schemas and updating API versions without breaking existing code. Alex Rasmussen is an expert in helping teams through these struggles. His talk will examine database schema changes and API versioning as two instances of schema evolution: how your systems respond when the structure of your structured data changes.
