Extra resources for Computer Systems Performance Evaluation and Prediction
If there is insufficient space, the operating system will partition the program into segments and pull them in as needed.
Hardware management requires the ability to set limits on the holding of resources and the ability to transfer control from an executing program back to the operating system. These functions are realized through the use of hardware timers and interrupt services. A hardware timer is a counter that can be set to a specific count (time period). ), and turns control over to an interrupt service routine. , the CPU status register or a predefined interrupt register) or sets memory locations and determines what operations are to be performed next.
Hardware designers improved the computational capacity of the systems through improved architectures and instruction execution schemes. All such improvements, however, were only temporary. The research and development community began to look at ways to improve performance within fixed or marginally improving processor performance. The problem is that no matter how much we improve the performance of a processor, it will still have a limited amount of available cycles for applications and required systems services.
