Course Information

Course Objectives:
This class builds on the knowledge of basic operating system design and implementation principles of simple uni-processor monolithic OS architectures typically studied in introductory operating system classes (e.g. CSCE 451/851). It seeks to do so in two ways: by examining how these basic design and implementation principles must be modified, generalized, and extended when applied to multiprocessor and distributed systems; and by looking in greater detail at the design tradeoffs relevant to specific OS subsystems covered in the introductory class. Of particular interest are the design and implementation tradeoffs driven by emerging changes in underlying technologies.
