Operating system concepts-3

Master the basics of Operating System memory management, virtual memory, page replacement, thrashing from scratch.


Ace operating systems (OS) memory management, paging, virtual memory, page replacement, thrashing, working set questions in competitive exams, job interviews, and OS course exams.

Do you know: How the OS presents an illusion of infinite memory to users? How can the OS execute processes much bigger than the RAM (main memory)? Where do memory addresses come from? How does OS keep several processes inside the RAM for execution? How OS makes room for new processes when the RAM is full? What happens if there are too many processes in the RAM? Learn the explanations to these and many more intriguing questions in this course!
