In the course System Architecture we'll present various concepts, how to design and implement local systems, according to various objectives. Furthermore we'll discuss in short performance prediction and analysis.
The lecture and the exercises will cover all kinds of software systems, especially operating systems and basic application systems, beginning with small pervasive systems (e.g. a coffee machine) and ending up with highly complex information systems like an airline reservation system.
In all these software systems, though very different according to size and functionality, we have to solve some fundamental conceptual problems arising in nearly every system. The first big point in this lecture will be: "How to establish concurrent activities and how to handle concurrency problems". The concept thread will give the right answer. Another major issue will be: "How to protect concurrent activities against each other". The concept address space will provide the corresponding means. Another interesting topic will be: "How to store information for a longer period of time". The well known concept of files and file systems handle all problems related to this topic. Secure and efficient interactions of singular components are necessary for each successful system design. This course is characterized by the fact that we want to evaluate the freedom of design of a system architect.
In the lecture we will present the following topics: processes (threads), address space and domains, interactions in form of synchronization (event, semaphore, critical region, monitor), communication (message, rpc) and cooperation on common data (semaphore, shared memory), temporary and persistent data (buffers, files), methods of resource management (physical, virtual resources), some examples of structured systems (layered systems, microkernel systems, realtime systems). In some of these topics scheduling problems will be discussed, e.g. processor scheduling, disk scheduling etc.
