Expanding upon what Pixellany said...

To be a little more specific, I believe Linux Kernel in a Nutshell is available for free--legally. I have a copy of it floating around, but I haven't read it yet.

Actually, apparently I suffer from epic fail disease and didn't realize (for one reason or another) that this thread had made it to two pages...

Well, why didn't you say so instead of posting your assignment questions

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/li...brary/l-kperf/
http://os.inf.tu-dresden.de/pubs/sosp97/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mach_kernel

However, industrial trng(sic) projects usually have course note and reference materials. You should start with those.

OK, the better sort of homework then :-) (the sort that you don't actually do at home)

Fair enough, I suppose, but...

Be aware that for industrial purposes the performance of the Linux kernel is very different from the performance for desktop useage. Had you said this was about industrial, you'd have had a better chance of getting responses that would have been actually helpful.

If you want to persue this further, then you should probably look at some of the websites specialising in real time Linux (and maybe other RT systems for comparison). The first few links a Google search on "RT linux" shows up are:

www.fsmlabs.com/
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RTLinux
www.rtlinuxfree.com/
www.linuxdevices.com/articles/AT3694406595.html
www.linuxdevices.com/articles/AT4503827066.html

and I'd bet that any of those will tell you useful stuff. In fact, you should do that search for yourself, because even way down the list of links there is useful looking stuff.

ok no quotes hereafter
'Linux Kernel in a Nutshell" is a good place to start to get answers for the posted questions. There are other links in the 'Kernel' section of 'Slackware-Links' that the 'OP' can reference.

Edit: BTW, the training project is going to be considered homework. You should read the 'LQ rules'!

Hi,

I posted the LKN link along with others for the OP to reference. I noticed the posts for the LKN before but to re-post is not against the LQ rules.

If this is a game to you then albeit you win one point for the first to post a link for a great reference for the Linux kernel; 'Linux Kernel in a Nutshell'.

Notice in my previous post that other references were presented to the 'OP'.
