From the Back Cover:

The Linux Process Manager is a line-by-line explanation of the subset of the Linux source code kernel which deals with process management, covering:

  • process creation, scheduling and termination
  • synchronisation, including locks and semaphores
  • interrupts (hardware and software)
  • signal handling

Complete in every way, this book describes every function and macro. All data structures used by the process manager are dealt with and their role in the overall picture explained along with the accompanying raw code.

This indispensable guide to the kernel subset is aimed at readers with some previous knowledge of operating system structure and terminology, as well as a minimum knowledge of the C programming language. The comprehensive index which lists every identifier, makes in-depth information instantly available to programmers, software engineers, system administrators and anyone who wants to modify the kernel, or wants to know about the implications of kernel configuration variables.

About the Author:

John O'Gorman is a senior lecturer at the University of Limerick. His research interests are in the area of reverse engineering, and he has been analysing a wide range of operating system internals, and teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses on the topic, for 25 years. He is the author of two textbooks on operating systems, one of which takes Linux as a running example.
