CertificationView course modules
This free online course on deadlock and memory management in operating systems will begin by introducing you to the concept and function of deadlock in operating systems. You will learn how deadlock is characterized, as well as the concept of resource allocation policy as it relates to the problems of deadlock. This course will teach you how to apply resource types to detection algorithms in deadlock.
Then, this course will also introduce you to how to invoke the deadlock detection algorithm as well as the processes involved in deadlock recovery. Furthermore, this course will teach you about various memory management schemes available in the operating system. You will also learn about the chronological background of the memory, as well as how memory is protected in an operating system.
Finally, this course will introduce you to the contiguous allocation policy of memory management as well as the concept of fragmentation along with segmentation in the operating system. This course will then improve your knowledge about the steps to take in allocating frames to a new process in operating systems. Begin this course and improve your knowledge about the functions of memory management in operating systems.Start Course Now
