Articles: Showing

EROS: A Principle-Driven Operating System from the Ground Up ( Jonathan S. Shapiro, Norm Hardy ; IEEE Software Magazine 2002-01)

- Design principles are one of the most advocated ideas in software construction, but they are rarely systematically applied. They are particularly critical in se-cure, reliable systems. EROS, an operating system built from the ground up, provides formally verifiable security, practical reliability, and high performance. This article describes the primary design principles on which EROS is built, the impact these principles had on the design, the application structure that naturally emerged from the resulting system, and the how this affected the system's security and testability.

Self-Tuning Systems ( Dror G. Feitelson, Michael Naaman ; IEEE Software Magazine 1999-03)

- Tuning operating systems helps system administrators improve system performance and efficiency, but it can be time-consuming. These authors propose a mechanism, based on genetic algorithms, to automate this process by running simulations of system performance for various parameter values during the system's idle loop.

Posix: A Model for Future Computing ( Charles Severance ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-01)

Legal Implications of Operating Systems ( Larry Graham ; IEEE Software Magazine 1999-01)

Customizing System Software Using OO Frameworks ( Nayeem Islam ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1997-02)

- Today's applications have exploded in their diversity, but most operating systems are still general-purpose and inefficient. One of the benefits of using an OO approach is the ability to modify very small details of an operating system, which makes it easy to tailor the system to the application.

Evolving an operating system for the Web ( Franklin D. Reynolds ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1996-09)

Plan 9: Bad Movie, Good Operating System ( Quentin Fennessy ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1996-05)

TC On Operating Systems and Application Environments ( Darrell D.E. Long, Abdelsalam (Sumi) Helal ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1996-02)

The QNX operating system ( David C. Sastry, Mettin Demirci ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1995-11)

The History of Posix: A Study in the Standards Process ( J. Isaak ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1990-07)

- The background of the Posix (an acronym for the standard formally known as Portable Operating System Interface for Computer Environments) standardization is described. Significant steps and/or stages in the process are discussed. They include setting up key guidelines; a methodology for identifying consensus that had evolved from software engineering groups writing the rationale; expanding participation; the issuance of a trial use standard and the issues it raised; additional activities launched; and future work.

Guest Editor's Introduction: Recen Developments in Operating Systems ( Joseph Boykin, Susan J. LoVerso ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1990-05)
