Interrupt Handling Schemes in Operating Systems

Authors: Mejia Alvarez, Pedro, Eduardo Leyva del Foyo, Luis, Diaz-Ramirez, Arnaldo

  • This book describes how the interrupts are handled in several operating systems
  • All operating systems are based on interrupts which are very important to understand how they help control the functional behavior of operating systems
  • It is also relevant to mention that we are including not only general purpose operating systems but also real-time operating systems. In this type of operating systems, interrupts are more important because they help to control temporal predictability, scheduling and interferences from tasks and interrupts
  • No such research study has been done before for comparing and analyzing the interrupt handling schemes in operating systems

About this book

In this book, the interrupt handling models used by several operating systems are introduced and compared. 

We begin with an analysis of the classical interrupt management model used by Unix, followed by the schemes used by modern networked environments.

We highlight the key challenges of each of these models and how these have been solved by modern operating systems and the research community. Then we analyze the architectures used for general purpose and embedded real-time operating systems.

About the authors

Pedro Mejıa-Alvarez received the BS degree in computer systems engineering from ITESM, Queretaro, Mexico, in 1985 and the PhD degree in informatics from the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spain, in 1995. He has been a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at CINVESTAV-IPN Mexico since 1997. In 1999, he held a research faculty position in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Pittsburgh and, in 2000, a visiting assistant professor position in the Department of Information Sciences and Telecommunications at the University of Pittsburgh. His main research interests are real-time systems scheduling, low-power computing, adaptive fault tolerance, and software engineering. He is member of the IEEE Computer Society.
