This subject is based on the competences and knowledge acquired in the following previous subjects:
Operating Systems I is an important prerequisite, as it covers the basic fundamentals of operating systems, process modeling, memory management, and input/output and file systems. On the other hand, the knowledge acquired in Concurrent and Real Time Programming is also an important requirement, since the basic mechanisms of synchronization and communication between processes are studied. In addition, it is necessary to have knowledge of C laguage, as well as structured, modular and object-oriented programming concepts.
The subject Operating Systems II belongs to the fourth year of the Degree in Computer Engineering, in particular, to the intensification of specific technology of Computer Engineering. In this course the student will be able to know in depth the entrails of an operating system, and will acquire a critical vision on the different design options. The GNU/Linux operating system will be used as the main case study, although this does not rule out the possibility of referring to other operating systems during the course.
The subject is closely related to the subject operating systems I, extending its contents, such as the design of an operating system kernel, and the ability to add new functions to it. Thus, the student will not only be able to use the operating system services in the form of calls to the system, but will also be able to understand how these services are implemented and will be able to include new services into the kernel. In addition, the knowledge acquired in the subject of Concurrent Programming and Real Time is extended through the study of multi-thread programming, and communication and synchronization between threads.
The knowledge acquired by the student will allow him to work in the future within the framework of the development of operating systems, whose market is not limited only to conventional operating systems, but also to the development of systems for the control of embedded devices. In addition, in the framework of real-time application programming it is common to work with "modified kernels" in order to achieve the desired efficiency for a specific type of application.
