Course content
Overall structure and working principles of OSs and their individual parts are discussed. Particular ways of solving some task of OS and technologies used in modern operating systems are shown on Microsoft Windows NT and GNU/Linux systems (as a unix-like OS). Practices consists in problems of programming with basic structures of OS such as processes and threads, their communication and synchronization. One half of practices is held in Microsoft Windows OS and other half is held in GNU/Linux OS. Topics covered in the course: Deadlock, conditions for deadlock, detection, prevention, avoidance, banker's algorithm. Memory management. Disk management, file management, RAID. File systems, FAT, NTFS, file systems on UNIX. I/O management, drivers. Security, security categories. Architecture of operating systems.
