Question No: 31 ( Marks: 2 )
When a process is rolled out of memory, it loses its ability to use the CPU
(at least for a while). Describe another situation where a process loses its
ability to use the CPU, but where the process does not get rolled out.
Where the Infinite loop starts it also be the cause to suspend the CPU from
working sitution to idle stat.
Question No: 32 ( Marks: 2 )
How can you achieve memory protection in paging?
memory protection in paging is achieved by associating protection bits with each
page. these bits are associated with each page table entry and specify protection
on the corresponding page.
Question No: 33 ( Marks: 2 )
What is the basic function of pipe system call?
the pipe system call creates a pipe and returns two file descriptors, one for
reading and second for writing.
Question No: 34 ( Marks: 2 )
Provide names of common file structures.
FAT32
NTFS
Question No: 35 ( Marks: 3 )
What is the structure of Two-Level Page Table?
Question No: 36 ( Marks: 3 )
Ignoring CPU overhead, what are the three primary components of disk access
time (the time from the request of a sector to the time that it is available to the
CPU). Given a transfer of a single sector, rank them according to their relative
average cost.
Question No: 37 ( Marks: 3 )
Calculate the Average Waiting Time for four processes. Assume that
Processes come in the sequence of P1,P2,P4, P3 at time=0 and scheduling
algorithm applied is FCFS.
www.vu.ysapak.com
Processes CPU Burst
P1 4
P2 1
P3 3
P4 2
Question No: 38 ( Marks: 3 )
What do you think that why Main Memory is kept as a volatile memory and why
not a permanent storage device?
In my view the Main memory is volatile because it has to maintain current and
pending jobs to do till job done it kept data then transfers to the permanemt
storage device but the permanent stroage has to only store the data so thats why
data cant be on stack always all data cant be in working.
Question No: 39 ( Marks: 5 )
Briefly explain Thrashing as it pertains to main memory management.
A process is thrashing if it is spending more time paging than executing. thrashing result
in severe performance problems: low cpu utilization, high disk utilization, low utilization
of other i/o devices.
Question No: 40 ( Marks: 5 )
Summarize the tradeoffs among simple arrays, trees, and hash tables as
implementations of a page table.
