DISCUSSION: Linux Kernel Thread


This thread is to discuss the article titled:
Linux Kernel Thread

Quote:
LINUX KERNEL SERIES Author:Dinesh Ahuja
Title:Linux Kernel Series: Linux Kernel Threads


The purpose of this article is to cover Linux implementation of kernel threads and how these kernel threads can be used in kernel modules. This article will show how a kernel thread can be put to use for a monitoring purpose.
Most of today's operating systems provide multi-threading support and linux is not different from these operating systems. Linux support threads as they provide concurrency or parallelism on multiple processor systems. Most of the operating systems like Microsoft Windows or Sun Solaris differentiate between a process and a thread i.e. they have an explicit support for threads which means different data structures are used in the kernel to represent a thread and a process.

Thanks but what is this? Is it s a copy from a book/doc?

I already wrote a documentation in steps myself. If you need it, email me.

A good engineer, needs to document it properly. Please do NOT copy and paste from some others work. It is against the ethics, read IEEE ethics online.

Open source, sharing information is cool. However, again, you MUST document in steps, make it clear, define platforms, kernel versions, any other info etc.

Thanks
CM
