Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the developments in operating systems technology for distributed computing systems and multiprocessor machines. We focus on those design principles that are now widely accepted as useful design paradigms. Approaches common to distributed and multiprocessor operating systems are identified. Issues discussed include process scheduling and synchronization, load balancing, virtual and shared-memory management and parallel file systems. The task-thread model and the object model of computing are also discussed.
