Hi i'm a Computer Science student at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and i am doing a paper on FreeBSD, and i was wondering if someone could help answer a couple questions on processes for me?
o What states do processes move through?
o How does the OS execute? (within the context of user processes.. as a separate process?)
o How are new processes created? Who can create them?
o What are the most important scheduling criteria for this OS?
o How does the short-term scheduler select the next process to place in the CPU? What's the selection function? What's the decision mode?
o Is there a single ready queue or multiple ready queues?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
