3.4 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne ©2005 Operating System Concepts Process State Process State As a process executes, it changes its state. A process can be in one of the following states. new : The process is being created running : executing Instructions waiting : waiting for some event to occur ready : waiting to be assigned to a processor terminated : The process has finished execution
