Advanced Operating Systems (CS 5500)

Assignment 1 (60 points)

Process and Threads

Due by 17th February (Monday) 11:59pm

You are allowed to discuss the problem and solution design with others, but the code/answer you

submit must be your own. Your solution must include the certification of authenticity “I certify

that the codes/answers of this assignment are entirely my own work.”

For this first assignment, you won’t be writing code; instead, you will be reading and executing

the given below codes. Read the README instruction below for directions on how to compile

and link the programs. Submit your answer in writing onto Blackboard.

• Experiment 1. Thread and Process Creation

Study the programs thr_create.c and fork.c. These programs measure the average time to

create a thread using thr_create() and to create a process using fork(). Compile and

execute the programs. What do you conclude from this experiment? Describe the reasons

for the difference in timings.

• Experiment 2. Processes vs Threads

Study the two programs thr_shared.c and proc_shared.c. These programs are identical

except that one uses threads and the other uses processes. Compile and execute the

programs. What do you conclude from this second experiment? Explain the reason for the

difference in behavior.

• Experiment 3: The Update Problem

Study the programs shared_data.c and SharedData.java. In these examples, multiple

threads are both updating (i.e., modifying) a shared variable. Compile and execute both.

Are the programs behaving “correctly”? What do you conclude from this experiment?

README Instructions

• Run the program on Linux platform.

• To compile and run a C program (e.g., thr_create.c):

gcc -o thr_create thr_create.c -lpthread

thr_create

• To build and run a classfile from the java code:

javac SharedData.java

java SharedData

Submission Guidelines and Requirements

• Submit your answers for all the experiments as a PDF file onto Blackboard

• Include your name, UCM ID and Certification statement in your solution:

//Your name

// Your UCM ID

//Certificate of Authenticity: “I certify that the codes/answers of this assignment are

entirely my own work.”
