©LPU CSE101 C Programming Operating System Operating systems A collection of programs that manages resources of a computer, such as - processors - memory - input/output devices Perform basic tasks Manage transitions between jobs Increased throughput Amount of work computers process Multiprogramming Many jobs or tasks sharing a computer’s resources “Simultaneous” operation of many jobs. Timesharing Perform a small portion of one user’s job then moves on to service the next user

©LPU CSE101 C Programming Batch Processing systems First computer used batch OS in which computer ran batches of jobs without stop. A 'batch' is the name given to the task of doing the same job over and over again Programs were punched into card that were copied to tape for processing. OS runs the series of jobs sequentially without user intervention. When computer finished one job it would immediately start next one on tape.

©LPU CSE101 C Programming Batch Operating Systems Jobs, together with input data, are fed into the system in a batch. The jobs are then run one after another. No job can be started until previous job is completed

©LPU CSE101 C Programming The Advantages of batch based systems: Significant savings Reproducibility / elimination of human error Transference of computer workload from prime (expensive) daytime to cheaper overnight off-peak times.

©LPU CSE101 C Programming The Disadvantages of batch based systems 1. Lack of interaction between the user and job. 2. Inconvenient for users as users not interacted with machine. Only professional operator used this for stream. 3. CPU is often idle, because the speeds of the mechanical I/O devices is slower than CPU. Examples of batch operating system are as follows: 1) DOS (Disk operating system) 2) IBM OS/2 3) Windows 1,2,3 95, 98 and ME

©LPU CSE101 C Programming Time sharing Operating Systems In 1960’s time shared replaced batch OS. It allows many users to share the computer resources simultaneously. Each user is given a time slice to interact with the CPU. The size of the time slice will depend on the system. Each user is served in sequence.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
